Simple Sharing Cocktail Serves for Busy Bars

October 18, 2019

We’ve chosen some banging cocktail sharers that’ll go down an absolute treat with groups looking to get their drink on, without compromising the quality and taste of a proper cocktail experience.

Delicious Cocktails to Share

Yes, with the mention of ‘sharing cocktails’  it may be hard to block out the images of bright blue fishbowls (we’re looking at you if you’ve ever worked a season abroad) and the ultimate party favourite – an often suspicious looking rum punch.

We’ve got a thirst for the remarkable, and that doesn’t stop at sharing cocktails. Using our blends, you’re able to create incredible drinks with ease and consistency. We’ve also included a recipe for the tequila lovers out there. Check out the recipes below for some guaranteed crowd pleasers!

A Simple Strawberry Spritz

The first of our sharers is an absolute smash hit of a cocktail – featuring our Strawberry and Cucumber blend; boasting a bold celebration of two much-loved British flavours and blended to perfection.

Deliciously elegant and charged with prosecco, the Strawberry Spritz is a definite crowdpleaser, and as a sharer it’ll certainly provide the good times all round.

To make:

  • 100ml Icely Done Strawberry & Cucumber blend
  • 50ml gin
  • 100ml prosecco

Build over ice and stir, then garnish with chopped strawberries and cucumber slices.

If you’re looking for a hit of a sharing cocktail serve, the Strawberry Spritz will definitely quench your thirst for the remarkable, one group of thirsty customers at a time.

A Rhubarb and Strawberry Sharer

It feels as though the days of cocktails in the sunshine are long gone, but with this Rhubarb and Strawberry sharer, your customers are bound to get a taste of British summertime. Rivalling our Strawberry and Cucumber blend, the Rhubarb and Strawberry blend is certainly proving itself to be one of our best sellers.

Although its great as a a single serve – our Rhubarb and Strawberry spritz is even better as a sharer. What’s better than sharing the love (and drinks), eh?!

Want to give it a go? You’ll need to get your hands on our Rhubarb and Strawberry blend, and then you’ll be able to create the delicious spritz quickly and consistently.

To make:

  • 50ml Icely Done Rhubarb & Strawberry blend
  • 75ml gin
  • 250ml prosecco

Build over ice in a jug and stir, garnish with sliced strawberries and you’re good to go!

A Margarita to Share

If you’re looking for something a little less fruity, with a bit more of a kick, there’s nothing a Margarita can’t do. With tequila’s unique flavour profile, it’s able to offer a lot more than often expected from a drink, and there’s something about the Margarita which gives it its standing as a big hitter on any bar menu.

Ian Wisniewski’s 1998 book “Classic Tequila” (which of course, features heavily the holy grail of tequila cocktails – the Margarita), details a perfect serve for the unmistakably Mexican cocktail.

  • 2 parts tequila (we’d recommend El Jimador Blanco)
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part citrus (lime/lemon juice)

This is a cocktail that you don’t want to shake or strain. If you’re making the margarita to share, adjust the measurements accordingly, fill a jug with ice and build with some lime slices for garnish.

Salud!

We’d love to hear what sharing cocktails go down at treat at your bars. Give us a shout if you want to provide us with some inspiration!
