July's cocktail of the month
Our cocktail of the month this July is…
The Summer of ‘46
Here at OXO we’re channelling all things summery! Our newest cocktail of the month takes Makers Mark, Markers 46 and gives the traditional bourbon a vibrant, fruity twist.
Having been aged longer than its standard counterpart, Makers 46 offers a softer structure, whilst imparting a more diverse flavour profile. French oak staves are added to the bourbon towards the end of the aging process, bringing an element of spice to the beverage.
Unashamedly intense, Makers 46 finishes sweet on the palate with indulgent notes of toffee making it the perfect base for our playful cocktail.
Summer of ’46 muddles Makers 46 together with ginger, a dash of Licor 43, and a trio of perfectly blended fruit juices. Served over crushed ice, garnished with maraschino cherries and a viola flower.
Delicious, and dangerously drinkable this is the perfect cocktail to have in hand whilst watching summer sunsets roll over the Thames.
Summer of ‘46 can be enjoyed throughout the month of July at the OXO Tower. Pop in and say hi.
