Now that the good weather is (sort of) here, we thought it was about time to offer up some perfect vodka summer serves that will ensure you enjoy NB London Dry Citrus Vodka in all its glory.
Our citrus vodka is the first of its kind in the world so it’s only right that it’s served in a way that really makes our creation sing in the glass… and in your mouth.
Here are a few of our perfect vodka summer serves to ensure your sunny evenings are as gorgeous as they possibly can be!
Just as we believe there’s rarely anything better than the classic G&T with NB Gin, we also strongly believe that it’s hard to beat an exquisitely put together NB Vodka and Tonic.
For an NB V&T that will have your friends singing your praises, this is how to do it:
With the best, light tonic (we always recommend Fever-Tree) and a cube of ice, NB London Dry Citrus Vodka makes an invigoratingly dry, smooth V&T.
It’s a simple classic that you’ll love without garnish but if you’re feeling just a little bit creative, try it with a twist of lime, orange or strawberries, a sprig of fresh mint and black pepper.
We at NB are rather proud of our Scottish roots so we were over the moon when our friends at the Scran & Scallie in Edinburgh created this fabulous twist on the Cosmopolitan.
To create this sensational summer cocktail, you’ll need:
15ml Fresh lime juice
30ml Cranberry juice
45ml NB London Dry Citrus Vodka
Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and double strain into a large cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
Something so fabulously tasty shouldn’t be this easy to make… but it is.
NB Vesper Martini
Made famous by James Bond, this Martini contains both NB Gin and NB London Dry Citrus Vodka. For those who like theirs shaken, but not stirred.
Here’s how to do it:
60ml NB Gin
20ml NB London Dry Citrus Vodka
10ml Lillet Blanc or Cocchi Americano
Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a large cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive.
Summer Time Sally
This cocktail is so perfect for summer they even put it in the name. It’s so simple but so tasty and fabulously refreshing on a warm summer evening.
Here’s how to do it:
25ml NB London Dry Citrus Vodka
Top with Cream Soda
Garnish with Cucumber Slice
Add a good measure of NB Vodka to a highball glass, top it off with cream soda, garnish with a cucumber slice and ice and add a couple of ice cubes.
If you’re feeling a little creative, you could even experiment with the garnish on this one and try something citrusy.
