Botanical Cocktails Straight from the Farmers’ Market

Botanical Cocktails Straight from the Farmers’ Market

In partnership with our friends at

The secret to making effortless yet impressive cocktails at home is waiting for you at the farmers’ market (or anywhere you can get fantastic citrus, fruit, cucumbers, herbs, and edible flowers). Combining those ingredients, you can contrast tart, sweet, bitter, vegetal, and floral notes, achieving the balance and roundness just about any good cocktail provides.

The botanical essences of grapefruit, rose, cucumber, and mint in Ketel One Botanical amplify and deepen those bright and herbaceous flavors without sugar, so you can feel great sipping on these clean cocktails all summer long.

Since cocktails are nothing without hors d’oeuvres, we created two simple, farmers’ market–inspired appetizers to make alongside the drinks. Together, they make for an incredibly easy and supremely elegant cocktail hour.

  • The Botanical Breeze

    The Botanical Breeze

    This riff on the classic sea breeze gets its tartness and pinkish hue from hibiscus tea instead of cranberry. The floral notes of the hibiscus accentuate the rose essence without being perfumy.


  • Cucumber-Mint Cooler

    Cucumber-Mint Cooler

    There is perhaps nothing more fresh tasting than a cucumber-mint cocktail. We love the addition of spicy ginger and tart lime, which keep you coming back for more.


  • Cheater's Ceviche in Endive Boats

    Cheater's Ceviche in Endive Boats

    This recipe delivers all the fresh, spicy, citrusy flavor of ceviche, but it’s so much quicker. Make the shrimp salad up to 30 minutes in advance and spoon it into the endive after your guests have arrived and gotten a drink.


  • Simplest Blistered Padrón Peppers

    Simplest Blistered Padrón Peppers

    There’s something beautiful about the simplicity of this recipe. We love to serve it with olives, Marcona almonds, manchego cheese, and quince paste for a tapas-inspired spread.
