Dublin-based Craft Cocktails has released a series of special edition cocktail mixers specially for Mother’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.
The team at Bar 1661 has teamed up with Australian organic vermouth brand Regal Rogue to launch a selection of cocktails presented in a limited-edition set with messages to mum on each label.
For St. Patrick’s Day, the limited edition Green St. Sour pays homage to the home of Craft Cocktails, on Dublin’s Green Street.
The Mother’s Day bundle is a special set of four cocktails made with Regal Rogue vermouth, which is handcrafted from 100% organic Australian wine, blended with aromatic herbs and native Australian spices sourced from Aboriginal farmers. These cocktails have a lower alcohol content and reduced sugar content over traditional vermouth styles.
Each of the four 200ml bottles contain two serves, and the bundle is priced at €60 with a tote bag and free nationwide shipping included. No1 Mum is a low ABV option, made with Regal Rogue Wild Rosé balanced with vanilla vodka, peach and citrus. Mum’s the Word is another low ABV serve, made with Regal Rogue Daring Dry, and the flavours of pineapple, almond and Irish whiskey. Mommie Dearest with Regal Rogue Bold Red features dessert like flavours such as rhubarb, and sloe gin, and Queen Bee is a mix of Regal Rogue Lively White, rum, banana and passion fruit.
For St. Patrick’s Day, the Green St. Sour is based on a sour cocktail and uses a mix of Cocalero Clásico, melon, aloe vera, and citrus. Cocalero Clásico is a South American inspired botanical spirit, infused with a proprietary recipe of natural botanicals and herbs, with hints of coca leaf, juniper, guarana, orange peel, ginseng, ginger, green tea and lavender. It’s also one of the most successful independent Irish spirits to launch in Asia, and Craft Cocktails recognises that modern Irishness with this original recipe available in two size – 200ml serves 2 (€12.50) and 700ml serves 7 (€35).
Craft Cocktails launched in October 2020 with a range of six premium bottled cocktails – the Aviation, Pornstar Martini, Raspberry Negroni, Strawberry Daiquiri and Old Fashioned, with the Mai Tai and Cosmo following in February 2021.
The collection now has eight core cocktails made for ease of serve as well as limited editions throughout the year. The ‘message on a bottle’ personalisation service from Craft Cocktails meanwhile makes a perfect gift whether celebrated in person or remotely. The personalised label is designed, printed locally and shipped on the cocktail of choice.
Mother’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day limited edition cocktails are available from select retailers and from www.craftcocktails.ie, with secure delivery nationwide, same day local delivery on weekends, or curbside collection with ice and garnishes included from Bar 1661, Green Street, Dublin 7.
