Midsummer Muddle Cocktail Set We invented our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail on a Summer evening in June when we needed a special drink to celebrate with friends. Having rained all day and with just 20 minutes prior to the first guests arriving at 6pm, the sun finally came out. We decided it was time to be brave and create a new cocktail drink for the new Summer conditions and moved the whole party outside into our garden. Our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail was born, and what a drinks party it was!

You can purchase the drinks as our Midsummer Muddle Cocktail Set as pictured.

Ingredients

Preparation

This drink is designed to be made up in a large pitcher or jug and drunk long in high ball glasses. Add a good quantity of ice to a jug with a squeeze of fresh lemons and slices of lemon and cucumber. Add measures of Morello Cherry Brandy Liqueur 17%, Somerset Pomona 20% and Seville Orange Gin 26%. Top up with lemonade. Serve with additional ice in tall glasses.

If you would like add a little extra style to your cocktail, add some of our whole Morello Cherries in Apple Eau de Vie 20% to your cocktails.


Morello Martini CocktailThe taste of Morello Cherries are not for everyone. However, if you are a cherry lover and like a slightly sweeter drink, then our Morello Cherry Martini is definitely worth a try, it is utterly unique. Our delicious Morello Cherry Brandy Liqueur 17% gives this Martini its fruity and sweet taste, while our dry and smooth Demijohnnie Gin 50% and handmade Dry British Vermouth 18% both combine to drag this drink in a completely opposite direction. The result is a very sippable Martini Cocktail indeed.

Ingredients

Preparation

Fill a martini glass with ice to cool the glass. Add your ingredients along with lots of ice to your cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture hard for around 10 to 15 seconds. Remove all ice from the martini glass and strain the drinks from the shaker into the glass.

Finally, slide a few Morello Cherries soaked in Apple Eau de Vie onto a cocktail stick and balance on the side fo the glass. If your Morello Martini fails to have an effect on your guests, simply encourage them to try one or two of their Morello Cherries and wait for the fun to start!

Scottish Rose Cocktail Gift SetThe name Scottish Rose does not refer to the colour of the drink itself but rather the colour of one's cheeks after drinking it! This cocktail recipe was created for the Demijohn 2008 Staff Christmas night out by Alastair Simpson at which a cocktail competition was held between our Edinburgh and Glasgow shops. The Glasgow cocktail was called a Strawberry Moscow Mule. Although a draw was declared on the night, your comments on the success of each recipe would be much appreciated and can be posted online if witty enough!

Ingredients

The ingredients of this cocktail can be bought as our Scottish Rose Gift Set.

Preparation

Take 2 classic Martini glasses, evenly split the 1/2 measure of Demijohn's Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky between the 2 glasses. Tilt each glass and spin slowly to entirely coat the inside of the glass with a film of the whisky and discard the remainder. Then take a Cocktail Shaker, and fill with ice. Add 2 measures of Demijohnnie Gin 50% and a single measure of Apricot Brandy Liqueur 17%. Shake vigorously and then strain evenly into the 2 prepared glasses to remove the ice. To finish the cocktail, drop in a whole fresh bramble (blackberry) and then serve.


The Queen's Guard on parade in 2015 at Balmoral, with Cruachan IV the Regimental mascot.Highland Fuze is a long, refreshing, whisky sour cocktail drink with an explosive finish. It can quench the thirst of many on a warm Summer's evening in the most excellent way. Like all our recipes, there is a good story behind its creation.

Each year from August Her Majesty The Queen heads with her family to her Scottish home at Balmoral in Royal Deeside for her summer holidays. To protect her and provide a Guard of Honour for a number of ceremonial duties a Company of about 100 serving Scottish Infantry Soldiers are allocated the task of forming the Queen's Guard.

In 2015 this task fell to The 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (The Royal Highland Fusiliers) of whom the Guard Commander was a personal friend.

As part of the many duties of the Queen's Guard, they are required to host a number of high profile Cocktail Parties. We were asked to create a new cocktail drink that would be suitable for such occasions.

After some tremendously fun experiments with the Officers' of the Queen's Guard and some inspired mixology based around a toffee apple from Demijohnnie Joe Rogerson, Highland Fuze was born. A cocktail drink not only delicious in taste, but also fit for Her Majesty The Queen.

Ingredients

Preparation

Choose a large tumbler style glass and add a generous quantity of ice. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice and add measures of both Toffee Whisky Liqueur and Somerset Pomona. Add a dash of Indian Tonic Water and muddle gently. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Top Tip: Highland Fuze is ideally suited to being made in larger quantities and served from a jug at your drinks parties.

Solar Eclipse

Posted in All Recipes Cocktail Recipes Brandy Cocktails , by Angus Ferguson, on 27th March 2015

Aperitif Cocktail Recipes - Solar EclipseIt is not very often we all witness a total solar eclipse of the Sun, however on 20 March 2015 we did exactly that. Great Britain stood still at 9.30am to watch the thrilling sight. Excitement mixed with a little trepidation sent a slight chill down many a spine at the feeling of our planets vulnerability when the Sun's warming rays are extinguished for a few moments.

That evening, however, we felt a need to party and create some new cocktail recipes using all our mixology skills. To celebrate this magnificent event our Solar Eclipse Cocktail was born!

Mixing the deep dark strength of our unique British Walnut Liqueur 38% (The Moon) with the fiery spice of our smooth Ginger Wine 14% (The Sun) has produced an aperitif that not only resembles the remarkable natural event of the eclipse but can also make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck!

Warning - Please sip slowly for this is a strong drink!

Ingredients

Preparation

This is designed as a short sipping drink, so choose a large tumbler style glass and add a generous quantity of ice. Add the Ginger Wine first, then carefully pour the measure of Walnut Liqueur into the centre of the glass to create the effect of the eclipse.

Top Tip: You can use an ice mould shaped like a glass as we have done to hold the Walnut Liqueur in a central position to give best effect to your cocktail. This will allow you to watch the eclipse fade as the Walnut Liqueur is slowly released into the Ginger Wine.

Finally, drink this slowly and hope that the next Solar Eclipse passes on 12 Aug 2026 as smoothly as this one did!

Somerset 10 Year Old Cider Brandy 42%This cocktail was created to mark Saint George's Day, normally on 23 April. It needed to be quintessentially English, seasonally fresh and with a bite like Saint George's slain dragon! The result is a sharp, fresh cocktail with a little history of its own. Our Somerset Applecart cocktail combines the brilliantly smooth apple taste of our 10 Year Old West Country Cider Spirit 42% and the delicious marmalady twang of our Seville Orange Gin 26%.

Ingredients

Preparation

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake and strain cocktail glass. Garnish with slices of lemon and orange. Drink slowly to unleash the dragon!

Anything else I should know?

I always like a twist of cocktail trivia with each of our cocktails as there is generally an underlying reason for each creation. This one certainly appeals to my military roots as our Somerset Applecart is a derivation of the famous Sidecar cocktail created after the First world War at Harry's Bar in Paris. The story recounts that an Army Captain was in the habit of arriving in a chauffeur driven motorcycle sidecar at the Bar and that Harry created a cocktail for him. Using cognac, cointreau and lemon juice he created the drink known now as a Sidecar. Our cocktail uses this marvelous complement of tastes and the best of British handmade drinks to create a new English classic the Somerset Applecart!


Edinburgh Apple Royal Cocktail with the Royal Wedding Tower Gift Set

Edinburgh Apple Royal was a cocktail created to celebrate The Royal Wedding between Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton which took place at Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.

This drink brings together the finest taste of British apples used in the production of our Somerset Pomona 20% and the Spring freshness of our marmalady Seville Orange Gin 26%.

Ingredients

Preparation

Add ingredients to ice in an old fashioned whisky tumbler, top up with indian tonic water and garnish with a slice from a very British Apple such as Kingston Black, Harry Masters Jersey or Brown Snout!

Anything else I should know?

Our Staff Christmas Party in Glasgow, Feb 2011, with extra hair!Like everything at Demijohn there is a good story behind the creation of this new cocktail drink. Our Royal Wedding Cocktail was to be both fitting, appropriate and drinkable in Royal circles. To encourage some ideas we held a friendly competition between our 3 shops, with the intention of the newly created drinks being judged at our annual Staff Christmas Party. In 2011 it was held in our Glasgow Shop in early February.

The theme for the party was A Twist on Burns and those in attendance not only performed acts of poetry and music, in keeping with the tradition of Burns, but they also wore an item of fake hair! The prize for the best cocktail was relief for the creators from the fake hair they were wearing for the remainder of the party. So, competition on the night as you can imagine was stiff, but Demijohn Edinburgh won with their fabulous creation Edinburgh Apple Royal, a fitting and appropriate drink for even the finest State ceremony and certainly a drink to mark the Royal Wedding!

Cossack Kiss CocktailYou may not be able to dance like a Cossack, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to drink like one! Invented by our York Shop Team in early 2012, this is a fun cocktail combining our handmade Butterscotch Cream Liqueur with real Devonshire cream and our velvety smooth Spiced Rum Liqueur.

Ingredients

Preparation

Using a shot glass or small tumbler, if you are to include ice, pour in the Butterscotch Cream Liqueur first. Then pour the Spiced Rum Liqueur very slowly over the back of a tea spoon that hovers just above the Butterscotch Cream Liqueur. The result should be that the rum successfully floats on top of the cream. If you don't get it right on your first go, then unfortunately you will just have to try it again. Practice, of course, makes perfect and in this case a very jolly night!

Anything else I should know?

The Cossack Kiss Cocktail can be drunk at the start of an evening with friends as a sharpener or after dinner when the liqueurs come round. The combination of Cider Brandy in our Butterscotch Cream Liqueur and dark Demerara Rum in our Spiced Rum Liqueur make this drink an irresistible sip with a little kick in the pants!
