3 Summer Cocktails made with Ketel One Botanicals

Hey blog fam! Today I’m bringing you a post with recipes for some yummy summer time cocktails with Ketel One Botanicals. I’ve been a fan of Ketel One vodka for years, and when they came out with these three new varieties, I was super stoked. I was even more excited when Ketel One sent me the new varieties to try for myself!

The new Ketel One varieties include: “grapefruit and rose”, “cucumber and mint” and “peach and orange blossom”. Gals- these are made with 0 sugar, no artificial flavors, 0 carbs and 100% non-GMO grains so you can feel good about making a lighter, boozy choice!

I’m usually just a vodka soda drinker myself and these three are great with just a splash of soda water and a squeeze of citrus. However, today I’m bringing you three full blown “cocktails” complete with recipes. I was a bartender for 9 years, so I’d like to think I’ve got a pretty good handle on this whole mixology thing- girly drinks might just be my specialty. . . so without further ado, here are my recipes for the Ketel One Botanicals that I hope you’ll try!

Also, can I tell you guys that while making these I drank every single martinis that are pictured here? I was supposed to have help but those plans fell through sooo there I was. . .don’t worry- I wasn’t driving and ended up having a nice little “me” party at home with some delicious dranks and macarons!

First up I used the peach and orange blossom variety. I’m calling this one “Peaches and Dreams” b/c it’s kind of a little twist on a dreamsicle. Although this has heavy cream in it, I think its still fairly light and refreshing!

- Shake vigorously until cocktail mixture becomes frothy.

- The tangerine soda is from Whole Foods and is their signature brand, you could substitute any orange soda if you'd like.

Next I used the cucumber and mint variety to make something very similar to a mojito trading out the rum for vodka. This one is super simple and crisp, I’d love to have one of these by the pool!

Light and full of flavor, this one is a twist on a mojito

- You can use sweetened or unsweetened coconut water depending on our preference.

- Alternatively, you can forego the soda water and top with a sparkling wine or Champagne.

Last, I’m sharing my recipe for a martini that I’m calling the “Bubbly Rose” . There’s something almost romantic to me about these new Ketel varieties and this one tastes just as good as it is pretty!

All of the flowers, macaroons and fruit for this post were from Whole foods.

- 1.5 oz Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit and Rose

- 1/2 oz Cardinal Spirits Flora liqueur

- 1 slice of red grapefruit, squeezed for juice

- Build cocktail over ice in a shaker tin using all ingredients sans the sparkling wine.

- Shake vigorously until well chilled.

- Strain into a coup or martini glass.

- Garnish with grapefruit twist and rose petals.

- I used Segura Vidas vaca as my sparkling wine, as we usually have some of that on hand. You can also use Prosecco or Chanpagne.

- You can also substitute any floral liqueur for the Flora liqueur if you can't find it in your local store. St. Germain elderflower liqueur would be a good substitute and ca be easily found at the grocery or your local liquor store.

- Also- make sure your roses are certified organic before using them as a garnish- most roses are treated heavily with pesticides and you wouldn't want to put any of those toxic chemicals in your cocktail!
