Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. We think it’s a good time to share our 5 favourite Welsh cocktails and drinks to try as the weather warms up. There is something magical about Spring, the birds are chirping, and plants awaken with a breath of life on the landscapes of Wales. Here are our top 5 Welsh cocktails and drinks to make and try this Spring. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook to find out about our special offers and events at the distillery where you can join us for delicious spring cocktails.
Steeltown Newport Lemonade
A super simple Welsh spring cocktail, with gin from the town of Steel. Although gin is traditionally paired with tonic water, we love to mix it up with lemonade, which lightens things up and is perfect for spring drinks. To make a Newport Lemonade, all you need is a glass, ice and a bottle of award-winning Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin, topped up with Fever-Tree Premium Lemonade.

Pink Elderflower Royale – the perfect spring cocktail
Inspired by the Blueberry & Elderflower Fizz, we make our take with naturally sweetened Steeltown Blueberry and Heather Welsh Gin. A double floral delight with the elderflowers and heather tips prominent in the flavours. All you need is 50ml Steeltown Blueberry Gin, a mix of the best with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic and a dash of syrup (to taste). Once done, add ice, and garnish with frozen or fresh blueberries and a wedge of lime. A refreshing spring drink from Wales.
Steeltown Vodka Cosmonaut – A simple and refreshing spring cocktail
If vodka is your thing, this delicious Steeltown Vodka Cosmonaut is out of this world! A delicious spring cocktail with layers of lemon, Welsh vodka, cranberry juice, and simple syrup. Get the recipe and make your own Steeltown Vodka Cosmonaut.
Dragon’s Breath Spicy Mojito
A classic cocktail with a dash of spice from the cave of curiosities at Spirit of Wales Distillery. Introducing the Dragon Spiced Mojito; like the classic, it’s got mint, lime, and simple syrup, but we have replaced the white rum with our curiously Welsh Dragon’s Breath Spiced Rum. A great way to add some spice to your spring drinks. Get the full Dragon’s Breath Spicy Mojito recipe.
Mocha Rum Martini
Not necessarily a spring cocktail, but we love this one so much we had to share it with Easter around the corner. Perfect for sipping on cooler evenings over the weekend, too. This is one you have to try! Curiously Welsh Dragon’s Breath Mocha Rum Martini. Our new take on the espresso martini or as we like to call it a rumtini, or if you prefer a traditional espresso martini, try it with award-winning Steeltown Welsh Vodka.
