Summer Cocktail Recipe For Moonlit Summer Nights

New York Smash Magazine  

Sitting under the moonlight in the summertime is an experience that feels as if it belongs in a fairy tale.

July marks a rare occasion; there are two full moons this month instead of one.

Known as the “Blue Moon,” the rare phenomenon happens every two to three years. To celebrate the occasion, we’re featuring the Jasmine Moon, a light and refreshing cocktail by Brockmans Gin.

Blended with botanicals, lemon juice, jasmine syrup and a hint of blackcurrant, this gin-based libation smells, tastes and feels like a warm summer night.

FYI: The full moon took place on July 2, and we can look forward to another full moon on July 31 and August 29.

Brockmans Full Moon Summer Cocktail: Jasmine Moon
When the moon is full, it exudes a unique energy like no other. All that is needed to complete the occasion is the perfect cocktail in hand. Created by Brockmans, the "Jasmine Moon" is a smooth and unique blend of botanicals. Brockmans’ new-style gin is paired with lemon juice, jasmine syrup and a hint of blackcurrant to create a light and refreshing cocktail suited to toast this summer’s full moons and all the night has to offer.
