Non-alcoholic drinks refresh and recharge you
For those who live fast, MangoGo is the right energy drink. In summer it will refresh you, and in winter its flavour will transport you to tropical places. For a morning awakening or an afternoon pampering, treat yourself to Vita shots, which will recharge you with vitamins of lemon, ginger, pomegranate, pineapple, turmeric and chilli. This healthy drink will nourish your body and stimulate your metabolism without any extra calories.
Non-alcoholic drinks can be consumed on their own or mixed with alcoholic ones. Thus, tonics are best known for their combination with gin. Half-fill a glass with ice and pour in Limbay tonic and Limbay gin with spices from the foothills of the Kamnik Alps. Or you can try the excellent Franklin & Sons tonics, awarded the prestigious Grate Taste Producer award, which ranks them among the main stars of blind tastings.
The producers of this tonic carefully pick natural fruits for their soft drinks and do not add any artificial sweeteners and flavourings. The company also boasts their own Cola, created in the late 19th century. Its unique taste is provided by as many as 12 spices and herbs, including African cola nuts, Colombian coffee beans and vanilla.
On the balcony, beach or at a picnic – refreshments are always welcome
Non-alcoholic drinks and premixed drinks are an excellent refreshment, whether you are on the beach, on your balcony or at a picnic in your garden. They are relaxing, invigorating and stimulating, so try to think of some other places where you could enjoy them. You can combine them anyway you like.
We already mentioned gin and tonic, but what could we mix with Cola? It will pair especially well with whiskey, rum, red wine or gin. Alternatively, you can prepare unique cocktails with Vita shots, tonic and MangoGo. The lemon and ginger shot will blend wonderfully with the aroma of freshly picked rhubarb in the Franklin & Sons Rhubarb Lemonade, to which you can also add some sweet white wine or aromatised wine.
The more adventurous among you will probably prefer a cocktail with the pomegranate and chilli shot, to which you can add some red wine or a liqueur of your choice. Dry red wine can also be combined with a low-calorie version of the award-winning Natural Indian Tonic Water. Alternatively, if you want the non-alcoholic drink to stay this way even after mixing, try some tempting combinations of the delicately flavoured tonics and shots. The tonic will provide the bubbles, and the shots will imbue it with their exquisite aromas and flavours.
Ready-made mixes of soft drinks or cocktails are excellent for events where you do not have time to mix drinks with precision or you do not have all the necessary ingredients to prepare a truly excellent drink. Wine or champagne cocktails are the perfect choice for gourmets and those who like to experiment. And lovers of Spanish culture will be appreciative of Vicente Gandia’s premium sangria. It pairs well with Spanish and Mediterranean dishes, creating a proper summer holiday vibe at your table.
What is the best ratio between gin and tonic?
Gin and tonic should be prepared with one measure of gin and two measures of tonic (1 : 2). Keep in mind that some liquid will also be added by the melting ice. If we also take into account the alcohol content in gin, the general rule is that the stronger the gin, the more tonic it needs.
How to decorate glasses with cocktails?
For an even more enjoyable experience while drinking cocktails, choose the right glasses and decorate them appropriately. Add a slice of lemon to a lemon drink, bedeck a red-coloured cocktail with a slice of orange, and adorn a white wine cocktail with pink flower petals. When decorating, choose fruits and additions that are in colour contrast with the colour of the drink.
How much alcohol is in premixed drinks?
The alcohol content depends on the alcoholic drink used in the mixed drink and the method of its production. This means that the alcohol level varies from one mixed drink to another, so look for this information on the container of the drink in question when buying it.
