3 Springtime Schnapps COcktails: Goodtimes with better sips.
Hey there Steinbokkers! Spring has sprung, so we’re breaking out the sunglasses, putting away our puffers and getting ready for fun! We’ve got a few recipes that will kickstart your Springtime Goodtimes, featuring some of our absolute faves: Elderflower Liqueur, Peach Schnapps, and Butterscotch Schnapps.
Elderflower Liqueur, Peach Schnapps and Butterscotch Schnapps
Springtime flavours are classically floral, sweet, and bright – notes that Steinbok is well versed in! But before you start, you want to have the right glassware to get the best out of your mixes!
The choice of glassware can significantly shape your drinking experience, and it’s especially important when crafting springtime cocktails. Using the right glass not only enhances the vibes but also allows the flavors and aromas to come through! Here’s a quick rundown of some essential glassware for our springtime sips:
Cocktail Coupe: The classic coupe glass is perfect for sophisticated cocktails. Its wide, shallow bowl is ideal for showcasing the vibrant colors and aromas of your drinks. It’s the go-to choice for many cocktail makers. This one is such a vibe right now!
Highball Glass: Tall and sleek, highball glasses are great for long, refreshing drinks. They’re perfect for iced cocktails that you want to savor slowly on a sunny spring afternoon. We love this one too – perfect for fruity bevs!
Rocks Glass: Sometimes, you want to keep it short and sweet. Rocks glasses are ideal for drinks served over ice, and they’re also great for showcasing complex cocktails that don’t need a lot of space. These are absolute classics.
There are always so many more, so be creative, but think about the setting and experience you want when having your drink! Now, let’s get to the good part: the drinks!
