DIY Flavoured Syrups To Spruce Up The Classic Seabreeze Cocktail

Use These Homemade Flavoured Syrups To Make Seabreeze Cocktail Variations

Picture your classic Seabreeze, a refreshing mix that usually plays it cool with cranberry and grapefruit juice, riding shotgun with vodka. It's like that reliable friend who's always up for a good time, but sometimes, don't you just want to shake things up a bit? Enter homemade syrups, the secret sauce to turning your standard Seabreeze into a symphony of flavours. 

The Basic Brew

Starting with vodka as our canvas and sticking to the rules, we'll keep it classy with a smooth operator like Smirnoff. For our base Seabreeze, we're talking 45 ml of vodka to keep it within the genteel society of cocktails where no one gets too tipsy too quickly.
 
Now, the real fun begins with the syrups. Making your own syrup is as easy as pie and twice as sweet, spicy, or tangy—basically, whatever tickles your fancy. It's just water and sugar at its heart, but with a twist of your own flair.

Berry Bold

First up, let's concoct blackberry-lavender syrup. Simmer down some fresh blackberries with a dash of lavender and sugar. Strain this purple gold and let it cool. Add this to your Seabreeze for a drink that's got more layers than a bestselling novel. The blackberry lavender syrup not only adds a rich, fruity depth but also an aromatic whisper that'll make you think of English gardens and lazy summer days.

Spice It Up

Fancy a little thrill? Let's get into making chilli lime syrup. That's right. For those who love a bit of zest and zing in their sip, this is your jam. Just simmer water, sugar, a few chilli slices, and a generous amount of lime zest. This concoction? It's going to give your Seabreeze an edge—a sort of fiery dance on your tongue. It's this zesty kick, mingled with grapefruit's tartness, that transforms your drink from the usual fare to a full-on flavour fest. 

Sweet Citrus Spin

How about we take a detour to the tropics with a coconut grapefruit syrup? Picture this: the lush sweetness of coconut merging with the punchy tartness of grapefruit. It's as if your Seabreeze slipped away for a quick tropical getaway and came back flaunting a vibrant, sun-kissed glow. This syrup adds a velvety, citrus-kissed sweetness that complements the vodka's clean bite, elevating your Seabreeze to a realm of cool, refreshing bliss.
