Fever-Tree has published the ultimate handbook for summer drinking: Fever-Tree Easy Mixing, containing more than 150 quick and delicious mixed drinks and cocktails.
The follow up to Fever-Tree’s bestselling Art of Mixing book, Easy Mixing offers clever variations on the drinks that Aussies
already know and love and is a response to the rising tide of at-home mixology.
IRI Australia stats show off-premise sales of alcohol soaring in the past 12 months with shoppers creating at-home cocktail bar experiences more than ever. Along with this, Aussies are creating at-home cocktail experiences more than ever due to lockdowns over the past 18 months, acknowledging that there is no better time to finesse their at-home mixology skills.
Easy Mixing features simple ingredients that people are likely to have in their cupboard or fridge without having to trawl the internet or specialist drinks aisles.
From the classic gin and tonic to a selection of fruity spritzes, mules and mojitos, as well as no-and-low alcohol alternatives and a handful of pitchers for when the party gets started, Easy Mixing celebrates how easy it is to create fast and flavourful quality drinks at home, with all the cocktails and mixed drinks taking less than three minutes to make.
Fever-Tree Co-founder Tim Warrillow said: “We have seen first-hand the growing interest and excitement in mixing drinks at home around the world and have set out to create the perfect companion for this growing band of at-home mixologists.”
Here’s one of the delicious recipes from the book:
