It may be the dog days of summer, but there is still plenty of gorgeous weather and valuable time left to be spent with friends and loved ones. We want to help you to enjoy the long summer days and blissful evenings by suggesting some of our favorite bespoke summer cocktails you could have on hand to serve your guests. Naturally, with an exquisite cocktail in hand, we know you will have an eye-catching accessory on your wrist to accent it!
Piguet Limoncello Collins:. A summery twist on a classic, this cocktail mixes gin with lemon-flavored liquor, making it the perfect cocktail to cool off with in the shade while hosting a late summer garden party. This drink is easily multiplied according to your number of guests and when made in large batches will serve your guests quickly and easily.
- 1.5 ounces of gin
- 2 ounces of Limoncello (lemon-flavored liquor)
- 2 ounces of club soda
- Garnish with paper-thin lemon slices
Classic and adaptable, we love Audemars Piguet. Creating timepieces since 1875, and operating on the belief that in order to break the rules, you first must understand them, we love the connection between the Tom Collins revamped, and the nod to tradition will always moving forward that Audemars Piguet embodies.
Mint Julep: : Horse-racing season may be over (well, the Triple Crown series of racing, anyway), but we still love the crisp and refreshing taste of a well-done mint julep. A highball glass, muddled mint, lots of crushed ice and fresh mint leaves to garnish are sure to cool down even the hottest Southern summer afternoon.
- 2.5 ounces of bourbon
- .5 ounce of simple syrup
- .75 ounce of lime juice
- 1 ounce of club soda
- Garnish with mint sprigs
The sophistication of this bourbon-based classic pairs nicely with the meticulous attention to detail of a hand-finished Patek Philippe. A heritage timepiece, a Patek Philippe is sure to be enjoyed by you and your heirs as your favorite accessory stands the test of time, being enjoyed by generations.
Thai-Basil Sangria: A playful twist on the traditional, this sangria is white wine-based and enjoys a fusion of flavor from orange juice and a kick of brandy. Adding basil and citrus zest to the simple syrup while it simmers, elevates the taste and provides a little something extra. This recipe makes a pitcher- combine below ingredients with pre-made basil simple syrup for a flavourful summer sipper.
- 2 bottles of chilled Pinot Grigio
- ¾ cup of brandy
- ½ cup of fresh orange juice
- Chilled club soda (to top each glass once poured)
We think the adventurous man or woman who likes to stray from the expected will be sipping this cocktail with a Ulysse Nardin on their wrist. Honoring history and shaping the future, Ulysse Nardin is known for their revolutionary developments in haute-horology.
