Is there such a thing as a healthy cocktail? No, stop asking silly questions Jon. However, Fine Cocktails are about as close as you will get. Being refined sugar free and competing internationally, quitting drinking completely is something I have considered many times. Sanity, however always seems to prevail. That being said, about 3 years ago I stopped drinking beer, cider & wine etc… and started drinking only clear spirits. I also cut out all mixers, so I would pretty much only drink neat gin. I actually didn’t mind, in fact I rather enjoyed it. I started going on tours of distilleries, gin tastings and master classes in order to further my knowledge of gin as a beverage and try as many as I could get my hands on.
A few weeks ago I was attending the latest Foodies Festival in Clapham and stumbled across Fine Cocktails, they kindly offered me a sample and I kindly declined saying “it probably has too much sugar for me thanks”. “It is free from refined sugars”, I heard. In disbelief I picked up a bottle and read the ingredients. He wasn’t lying!
For any athletes or refined sugar free foodies out there looking for a tasty drink to have on a night out Fine Cocktails offer a great alternative to most sugary pre made cocktails.
Fine Cocktails make two great flavours; my favourite, Lemon & Ginger and Raspberry & Lemongrass. Both have a vodka base and only fresh fruit juice is added. Whilst the two flavours are very different, one very sweet and the other sharp, they are both light on the palate and incredibly refreshing, great for a hot summer day! 1 bottle will make just about 2 martini glass cocktails and at 12.5% ABV you don’t need too many. Mother and I worked our way through a case and were getting moderately insensible.
Save yourself the hassle of making cocktails next time you have people round and make hosting that little bit easier by putting some of these in the fridge. Your friends will thank you for it!
With Fine Cocktails authentic branding, convenient packaging, great taste and low sugar content I can really see these guys taking off this summer. But don’t take my word for it. Give them a go for yourself, take them to your next barbeque, pre-drinks or cocktail party. What ever the occasion, Fine Cocktails will make a wonderful addition to the party. Cheers.
