Honeysuckle Gin Martini (serves 1)

Though simple to make, this cocktail can transport you to a rooftop bar in NYC in no time and is perfect for a classy evening of jazz, light linens and summer dresses. Shred the mint leaves then grab your shaker, fill it with ice and combine the gin, simple syrup, mint and the juice of one lime. Shake it for 20 seconds, pour it into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of lime. Then, finish it off with two drops of Honeysuckle® essence to help you feel present and enjoy the moment!

Sunset on the Bach® (serves 1)

If you’ve been dreaming of white sandy beaches and multicoloured sunsets, then this is the cocktail for you. Grab a large glass and fill it halfway with ice (crushed, if you have it). Pour the white rum, Malibu, orange juice and pineapple juice into the glass and stir. Top the drink off with a floater of cranberry juice and dark rum, and garnish with a slice of an orange.
