The summer mix

Experiential cocktails to #KeepYourMindTravelling

Summer’s here and the world is reopening, allowing us to get together once again with family and friends (and friends who are like family). Hopefully, we’ll all be setting off on some amazing journeys very soon. To celebrate, here is the next in our series of specially curated OutThere cocktail compendiums with our compliments, designed to bring you some sunshine after all this time. This edition showcases 45 signature recipes from across the world – as well as some personal ‘drops of golden sun’ – from a selection of our planet’s most OutThere hotels, resorts, experiences and destinations. As usual, we sweet-talked some fabulous mixologists into giving us their most cheerful and creative cocktail recipes, to brighten up your long evenings and #KeepYourMindTravelling until the time comes for you to travel and taste them in person.

We hope you like them (we’ve had a lot of fun taste-testing nearly all of them ourselves!) Don’t forget to share your summer mix with us on @outtheremag with the hashtags #outtheresummermix and #keepyourmindtravelling.

Cheers to a fantastic, experiential, summer ahead.

Visit Malta

There’s #MoreToExplore on the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo, particularly because the country is one of Europe’s hottest food and drink destinations right now. It has a long-established farm-to-table foodie scene (and fab Maltese wine) and that’s before you even mention the two new restaurants recently awarded Michelin stars, bringing the total of Michelin-starred restaurants in Malta to five.

Its awards and accolades don’t end there, for five years now, Malta has come top of ILGA-Europe’s league tables as the most LGBTQ+ friendly country on the continent. This inclusive archipelago nation is also the proud host of Europride in 2023.

To celebrate, Visit Malta asked Petros Skarmoutsos of Hammett’s Macina Restaurant – one of these lauded gastronomical destinations – to create a special mixed drink for this cocktail compendium. We are proud to present their creation, Milk’s Pride.

And there are so many more stars that make Malta so OutThere. Its UNESCO World Heritage site of Valletta is centuries of heritage brought to life and that’s before even exploring Mdina and Rabat. It’s also a destination for adventurers, with a world of activities both out and in the water (it is Europe’s leading diving mecca). Plus we can’t wait until its buzzing music, culture and nightlife scene returns.

Since travelling is beginning to kick off again, we created this cocktail to inspire travel. See you soon at the Le Hibou bar of the Bank Hotel in Stockholm.”

8. Castell Son Claret

Castell Son Claret Lemonade

Courtesy of Castell Son Claret, Mallorca, Spain

1 cup sugar (can be reduced to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water (for the syrup)
1 cup lemon juice from 4-6 lemons (Mallorcan, if possible)
3 to 4 cups water (to dilute)
Fresh mint for garnish

Make syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely. While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice. Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more lemon juice to it. Serve with ice, thinly sliced lemons and decorate with fresh mint.

“The citrus trees in the gardens around Castell Son Claret are full of lemons at this time of year; so we make this fresh lemonade for our guests daily – full of healthy vitamin C and right in season. Of course, if you wanted to personalise it with your favourite local gin, go for it! As they say, if life gives you lemons…”

Björn Spaude, Managing Director

9. Chewton Glen

Captain Marryat Mint Julep

Courtesy of Chewton Glen, Hampshire, UK

50ml Hennessy Fine de Cognac
20ml sugar syrup
20ml lime juice
20ml peach purée
5 mint leaves

Shake the cognac, mint leaves, lime juice, peach purée, and syrup with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Churn gently with a long-handled spoon and top with more crushed ice. Garnish and serve.

“The julep originated in the Southern States of America. It was Captain Marryat – an early pioneer of nautical fiction, who introduced the beverage into the British Isles. Marryat stayed at Chewton Glen during the 1840’s, gathering material for his famous novel “The Children of the New Forest” and possibly sipping a julep or two along the way. We hope you are inspired by this cocktail named after the man himself and look forward to making one for you at Chewton Glen in the coming months.”

Andrew Cook, General Manager

10. COMO Parrot Cay

Deep Blue Sea Martini

Courtesy of the COMO Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos

60ml vodka (Blue Ice American vodka if available)
25ml blue curaçao
20ml sour mix
20ml pineapple juice

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour the vodka, sour mix, blue curaçao, and pineapple juice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. When shaken, pineapple juice creates a foam on top of the drink. Some people don’t enjoy that— though it does settle after a few minutes—so you can also stir this martini. Sour mix is easy to find alongside other non-alcoholic mixers at liquor stores. You can have more control over the flavour and ingredients by making fresh sour at home. It’s incredibly easy, simply requiring sugar, water, and lemon and lime juice.

“COMO Parrot Cay’s Deep Blue Sea Martini is for those seeking a tropical escape from it all. Even if travel is still restricted, it’s all about a positive mind-set and what’s more uplifting than shaking that cocktail shaker and dreaming about the blue hues of the Caribbean sea.”

Chris Orlikowski, Group Director, PR & Communications

11. Conrad Rangali

Muraka Bageecha

Courtesy of Conrad Rangali, The Maldives

4 drops olive oil rhubarb bitters (mix 20ml olive oil, 35ml Rhubarb bitters and put into a bitter bottle dripper)
Orange cocktail perfume (mix 30ml Aperol and 20ml Cointreau into a spray bottle)
Bar torch
Dehydrated lime wheel and more fresh basil leaves

Muraka Bageecha (“Coral Garden” in Dhivehi, the Maldivian local language), was inspired by the scents and flavours of the resort’s head mixologist’s neighbouring home island, Ranfinolhu. Muddle the fresh grapefruit, add basil and combine all the liquids inside the shaker, shake and fine strain over a Vintage coupe glass, over ice block. Spray orange perfume through the flame over the drink and serve.

Experience the simple taste of luxury in the opulent ambience of The Muraka, with signature Muraka Bageecha, an amazing modern cocktail inspired by our island garden specially concocted to keep you inspired and your mind travelling until you can come and visit us again.”

Plose Spritz

Courtesy of Forestis, South Tyrol, Italy

Dash of seasonal herb syrup (winter woodland tonics work best)
Sparkling wine
Dash Ginger Beer

Add ingredients to a celebratory glass in the order above.

“Every drink at Forestis is constructed as if it were a tree. The method employed and the glass represent the roots; it is from them that the tree nourishes itself and which are the essentials for mixing drinks. The base spirit or bubbly in this case are like the trunk – they are the basic bearers of flavour. From the trunk emerge the branches of a tree; in the case of a drink, these are the various added flavourings, such as herb syrup. This blend of various ingredients generates a diversity of taste sensations that can be likened to the tree’s colourful blossoms. The designations of our signature drinks also conform to the various parts of those trees that are indigenous to our region: spruce, stone pine, mountain pine and larch. Do enjoy our signature drink and let the opulence of nature work its magic on you until you can join us here again.”

Tim Biebighäuser-Becker, Chef de Bar
