Five Tried and Tested Mixed Drinks

If you are hosting a party over the festive season you will want to check out my top five recommendations for tried and tested mixed drinks.

There are some combinations that just work. When you have a non-alcoholic spirit that is perfectly complemented by a mixer it can take your drink from fine to fantastic. Here are some combinations are tried and tested and guaranteed to please. 

Gordon's 0.0 & Strangelove Dirty Tonic

[product name="dirty-g-t-gin-mocktail-bundle"] 

The blurb: When it comes to the classic G&T, Gordon's is a household name. So there was a lot of excitement when Gordon's announced that they were bringing out a non-alcoholic gin alternative. 

The tate: Featuring a smooth texture and complex flavour profile with bold juniper notes and a subtle hint of citrus. 

The mixer: I recommend mixing Gordon's alcohol free gin with Strangelove Dirty Tonic. Made from unrefined cinchona bark, orange peel, rosemary and a pinch of sea salt. 

What customers are saying: "Bought this to try, and love it! I can have a quiet and guilt free G&T whenever I want. Gordon's alcohol free with a good quality tonic....good stuff!" 

Lyre's Spiced Cane Spirit mixes perfectly with ginger beer

Lyre's Spiced Cane Spirit & Strangelove Hot Ginger Beer 

[product name="dark-stormy-rum-mocktail-bundle"] 

The blurb: Lyres Spirits are the absolute masters when it comes to alcohol-free spirits that mimic the classics and in my opinion, this is one of the best. 

The taste: Featuring all the classic characteristics of a classic spiced rum such as caramel notes, toasted nuts, spiced vanilla, toffee and fig.

The mixer: I recommend mixing Lyre's Spiced Cane Spirit with Strangelove hot ginger beer - it's a fiery combination and the perfect alcohol free Dark & Stormy. 

What customers are saying: "Just like the Real Deal. If you like Rum, try this." 

Lyre's American Malt & Artisan Barrel Smoked Cola

The taste: Featuring a classic Bourbon nose and flavour with a long mellow finish.

The mixer: I recommend mixing Lyre's American Malt with Artisan Barrel smoked cola - the notes of smoked oakwood perfectly complement the alcohol-free whiskey. 

 What customers are saying: "Having been a non drinker for the past 25+ years, I was interested to taste this product. I must admit that I was a little skeptical but when I tried it over some cola and ice, it took me right back to my early 20s." 

Hellfire Bluff Inspirit & Strangelove Soda Water

[product name="hell-fire-pink-gin"] 

[product name="strangelove-soda-water-4-pack"]

The blurb: Made in Tasmania by a true family business with a passion for creating small natch, craft spirits.  

The taste: As the name suggests, it's a not one. Featuring a hint of Szechuan pepper and pimento on the finish as well as juniper and citrus botanicals and juicy Tasmanian blackcurrants. 

The mixer: There is so much flavour in Hellfire pink gin that I personally think a straightforward soda water is the best way to go. And when it comes to quality soda water, you can't do better than strangelove. 

What customers are saying: "Current favourite NA Gin! Spice heavy like a winter gin rather than a traditional London Dry style, and with more depth of flavour than some of the others I've tried"

Fluere Spiced Cane & Strangelove Smoked Cola

[product name="fluere-amber"] 

[product name="strangelove-low-calorie-smoked-cola-4-pack"] 

The blurb: Fluère uses ingredients that are known for their health benefits. Their botanicals, fruits, spices, and berries are sourced from Casablanca, the Dominican Republic, the Himalayas and the Mediterranean. 

The taste: Featuring a complex flavour profile with notes of dark roasted coffee, delicious cocoa, tangy liquorice, tonka beans and caramelised toffee. 

The mixer: If you are looking for a classic rum and coke style drink then I recommend mixing Fluere Spiced Cane with Strangelove Low Calorie Smoked Cola - it's a match made in heaven.
