The O’Briens Summer Gin Sale is back, so here’s two stunning cocktail recipes

Brian Dillon

Happy summer, gang! It’s officially cocktail season, so the O’Briens Summer Gin Sale came at an excellent time.

If there was ever a year to have your mates over to the back garden and whip up a cocktail, it’s 2021. Luckily, the O’Briens Summer Gin Sale is back, baby. And with some amazing gins on offer, we thought we would provide you guys with a couple of cocktail recipes, using Malfy Gin.

Distilled with some fine botanicals, Malfy is a true taste of Italy. With ingredients including hand-picked juniper, Italian lemons, Sicilian pink grapefruits, Sicilian blood oranges and blended with Italian water, you can now experience that dolce vita in your very own back garden. Physically, you’re in Ireland but mentally, you are transporting yourself to the glorious Italian coast.

The full Malfy Gin range includes four variants: Malfy Originale, Malfy Con Limone, Malfy Gin Rosa and Malfy Con Arancia.

However you choose to serve it, you’re in for a treat. However, if you need some inspo, we have two wonderful recipes for you.

First up, it’s an Almalfi Sunset Spritz

The Amalfi Coast may not be on the cards this summer but with this spritz we can imagine we are. Malfy Gin Rosa includes some of the finest botanicals including handpicked juniper, pink grapefruit, Italian lemons and some fresh Sicilian pink grapefruit. This light refreshing spritz is sure to impress any guests.
