1. Cassis Mojito 

If you love mojitos but want a little twist in the original recipe, here’s the perfect one for you. We’ve added cassis to the recipe. It uses Crème de cassis, a sweet, dark red liqueur made from blackcurrants. This gives a robust berry flavor to the drink, but a word of warning these are so delicious they may go down too easily. Handle with caution! 


  • 1.5 oz Absolut vodka 
  • 2 teaspoons sugar 
  • 1 oz cassis
  • 5 mint leaves plus sprig to garnish
  • Strawberries for drink and garnish
  • Prosecco 
  • 1 Spirits On Ice Ice Ball

Put the mint leaves and strawberries in a tumbler and muddle. Add sugar and vodka. Pour over a Spirit Ice Vice Ball and add prosecco. Garnish with another strawberry. 

2. Smoking Jacket 

When you’ve conquered the 18th hole and have retreated to the club house, this is the perfect time to grab a Smoking Jacket, sit back and relax.

  • 1 oz Mezcal 
  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 5 Dashes Bitters
  • Apple wood chips 
  • 1 Spirits On Ice Ice Ball
  • 1 orange peel for garnish 

Light apple wood chips on fire in a small bowl and cover with an old-fashioned glass. Remove glass and place a large, Spirit Ice Vice Ball inside. Shake, strain, and pour liquor, syrup, and bitters mix into the “smoking” glass. Garnish with a fresh orange peel.
