DIY Summer Drinks

While we love hosting your night out and slingin' cocktails for you, we also know sometimes a night at home is preferred!

Plus, we want you to be well prepared and educated while we're closed in Jan.

We've come up with our Top 5 Summer Cocktails that we know you can master.

Sgropino 1 Scoop Lemon Sorbet

60 ml Prosecco

10 ml Vodka

1/2 Scoop Ice

Blend together in blender, serve in Champagne Flute, garnish with twist of lemon.

Frozè Rosè

1 Scoop Lemon Sorbet

90 ml Rosè Wine (we recommend a full body one, think Barossa, Australia, instead of Provence, France)

Handful of frozen berries (strawberries, cherries or raspberries)

30 ml Vodka

1/2 Scoop of ice

Blend together in blender, serve in wine glass, garnish with fresh strawberry slice & fresh mint

(This one can be made tweaked to your liking if you want it more frozen, or more liquid. More ice = more slushy)


15 ml Bombay Gin

45 ml Grapefruit Juice

30 ml Aperol

Tonic Water

Add all together in a tall glass filled with ice, stir.

Garnish with slice of grapefruit.


30ml Gordon's Gin

Gin Infused (soaked) Cucumber


Lime Juice


Soda Water

Add gin, lime juice, lemonade & soda water together in a mixing glass filled with ice, stir. Activate mint (slap it together!) - add to mixture. Line wine glass with cucumber, pour mix into glass.

Garnish with lime wedge & sprig of mint.

Aperol Spritz

90 ml Prosecco

45 ml Aperol

Splash of Soda

Fill your wine glass full of ice, and add your Prosecco and Aperol.

Finish with your splash of soda.

Garnish with a wedge of orange, and a fun straw.

We know you can do it! Have fun with the glassware, the garnish, and serve with a smile. Your friends will thank you, and you'll feel like Claudio or Joe on a busy Friday night at Cru!
