We’ve partnered up with Proudly South African brands, Smiths Gins, Fitch & Leedes, L’Ormarins and @home, to share with you the easiest #mostinstagrammablecocktail of this summer to try at home with your friends and loved ones.
This summer’s Best Instagrammable Cocktails are inspired by the gin classics – French 75 and Smash. The first is a Gin, Lemon and Simple syrup and topped up with Champagne or Cap Classique; the latter is Gin shaken or stirred with crushed fruit, herbs, lemon juice and topped up with a mixer.
Both have had many creative iterations over the years however this is the first time that such diverse, proudly South African brands have worked together to create these eight unique versions. This unique partnership developed through lockdown between Smiths Gins, L’Ormarins and Fitch and Leedes mixers and @Home.
These cocktails are super easy to create at home, making them the perfect addition to this season's festive celebrations. Presented in @home’s classic glassware range with a mixture of Fitch & Leedes tonic, L’Ormarins Cap Classique and Smiths gin your guests will definitely be impressed!
The Sparklers adds instant glam to any event; the Smashers are refreshing cocktails, perfect for a hot summer's day; the Gin O'Clock Spritzer is the ultimate, light brunch and lunch delight or for any other gin o'clock occasion and the Mzanzi 75 is our South African take on the classic cocktail created using proudly South African brands only.
