Whether you're one of the world's most profound mixologists, or just an enthusiast who rather prefers their G&T drink on the sofa at home in front of the television, the taste sensation from a really good alcoholic drink is both refreshing and excellent. Revolutionary mixers to intensify the enjoyment of spirit based drinks, or enough to be drunk on their own, Double Dutch's mixers are well worth a consideration before you next open your drinks cabinet.
With the intention to elevate the spirit and encourage the experience of interesting and more-exciting flavours, Double Dutch's options are never a dilution of a drink, but offerings that bring a spirit to life. It is often said that great cooks have an intuitive sense of which flavours work together, and via their gastronomy skills, the exploration of complementary foods is a big industry these days. Inspired by such notion, Double Dutch have sourced the finest ingredients, and are proud to offer four drinks that act very much as an intensifier of a spirit's flavours, or a delighter of taste buds when drunk alone. The four flavours by Double Dutch are as follows:
Pomegranate and Basil. Considered a super-food, pomegranate's complex profile offers tannin qualities (like red wine) as well as sweetness. Basil is renown for "...lifting acidic flavours such as tomatoes and in a soft drink its peppery top note is a superb counterbalance to pomegranate", Double Dutch explains. Combined, you have an exotic taste.
Indian Tonic Water. A classic pairing for gin, but without that bitter after-taste to which many people object, such an objective is achieved by the "...brightening the top of the quinine flavour with pink grapefruit and deepening the lower notes with a subtle hint of juniper berry", Double Dutch explains.
Cucumber and Watermelon. Both part of the Cucurbitaceae family, "...watermelon's natural sugars bring warmth and shine to the traditionally fresh savour of cucumber, while cucumber has a traditional affinity for gin and a lighter summer", Double Dutch explains.
Slimline Tonic Water. An ideal soft drink for those who wish to watch their weight, this alternative to Indian Tonic Water claims to have 60% fewer calories, yet still manages to round out the flavour of white spirits like gin and vodka. "With pink grapefruit bringing piquancy to the first taste and juniper berry balancing quinine's crispness with a rounded aftertaste there's nothing skinny about this slimline mixer", Double Dutch explains.
