Some say drinking gin is for old people, but we would have to disagree. This cocktail is proof that gin can be youthful! To add a spring twist to the “old gin” you’ll need rose water, fresh roses and lemons. It is bursting with citrus and quite fancy!Ingredients:
Begin by adding edible flowers to an ice cube tray and filling with water and freezing. Mix all ingredients except for club soda, and flower ice cubes in shaker filled with ice. Add flower ice cubes into glasses. Pour cocktail over ice and top with club soda.
Zest lemon. Juice lemons to make 1/2 cup juice. Add to pot with water and sugar. Bring to a boil and then turn off the heat. Let syrup cool before using.
Who said cocktails always have to come in drink form? Try this delicious Popsicle recipe to keep you super refreshed this Spring! All you’ll need is some seasonal fruit (mangoes, cherries, raspberries, etc.), some wine and you’re pretty much good to go!
Blend wine, NTH Boost, iced tea and simple syrup. Pour into ice pop molds, filling 2/3 full. Add in a variety of chopped fruit to each mold until they are full. Use the popsicle sticks to push the fruit down and spread out across the ice pop molds. Freeze overnight to set. Because of the alcohol, the popsicles do melt fairly fast, so eat right away after removing them from the freezer.

Thought all Spring Cocktails had to be girly? Think again! This bourbon-based cocktail is a great option for all the whiskey lovers! A few ingredients you will need include lemon, thyme and bourbon of course!
Heat all of the ingredients for the simple syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a full boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook at a gentle boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow syrup to cool to room temperature. Strain syrup with a fine strainer to remove the thyme leaves. Add the pure lemon extract and refrigerate until ready to use. Note: Simple syrup can be saved in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
Combine the ingredients for one cocktail in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and serve over ice with a lemon wedge. Note: you can also make multiple cocktails at a time, or even a large batch of cocktails.

Try our homemade Spanish Sangria with this delicious recipe guaranteed to be a hit with any of your wine loving friends!
Slice fruit, ready to drop into a large punch bowl. Add ice to the punch bowl, along with red wine, OJ + Never Too Hungover. Stir Generously. Enjoy a glass right on the spot and/or refrigerate until serving - 4-6 hours would be ideal so the flavors can mingle. Drink within 1-2 days.
Here’s an easy and inventive way to add some fun to your drinks! Freeze Never Too Hungover into ice cubes and show your friends how to make cocktails that help prevent their hangovers!
Normally one 3.5oz bottle makes about 3 regular sized ice cubes, and that’d be all you need to help prevent a hangover the next day.
See below for details on what we exactly mean….
Simply pour Never Too Hungover into ice trays (flexible-silicon trays preferred). Let them freeze overnight.
Pour the NTH ice cubes into your glass with regular ice. Pour 2 shots of tequila and 3 NTH ice cubes for each serving desired (i.e. if serving for 4, put 8 shots of tequila and 12 NTH ice cubes into the pitcher). Pour in the limeade and garnish with a lime wedge. Feel free to squeeze another lime wedge inside the drink for an extra citrus kick.
