24 Drinks with Beefeater 24: The Golden Cup

Cocktail Culture’s going to keep the gin drinks coming with “24 drinks with Beefeater 24,” a warm-weather series that’ll stretch through summer and provide you with some delectably light cocktails.

This week I’m on a cucumber kick, so I’ll keep that going with the next drink in our “24 Drinks” series—The Golden Cup. It’s fresh (thanks to the apple, cucumber, and mint), light (thanks to the soda), and delicious (duh!).  And frankly, it’s gorgeous.

The Golden Cup – created by Charles Vexenat

2 ounces Beefeater 24

1 ounce Hiram Walker Orange Curacao

1 ounce Amontillado Sherry

1/8 Granny Smith apple (diced)

1 inch cucumber (diced)

Soda to top

Bruise apple and cucumber. Add ice and other ingredients. Stir and decant into a wine or Collins glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Cheers!

    That sounds so refreshing, I will have to try it out this weekend !

    A new favourite summer drink of mine is called the Eco-Tazz that I found on: (http://www.facebook.com/360vodka)

    It combines 2oz 360 Vodka
    3/4oz Sour mix
    1/4 oz Simple syrup
    5-6 Organic raspberries
    The purrrrrfect summer cocktail!

    Just stumbled across your blog I really like the 24 with 24 idea. Have you heard of the new Beefeater Summer that’s due to be released?

      Thanks for reading! I have heard of Beefeater Summer Gin-it’s actually something we’ll be talking about on the blog very soon. I had the opportunity to taste an early sample and it’s fabulous!

        Sounds great, I’m looking forward to it. If you can give us some pointers of where to buy a bottle when you feature it on your blog that would be superb.
