Mead Cocktail Recipes from Kate and Denis

 of the Kinsale Mead Company. Intriguing!

Many of you will know that Kinsale Mead are holding a series of online tastings. Cocktails keep coming up during the conversations. Kate and Denis (left) have kindly supplied some of their recipes and they look tempting! I enjoyed one of their tastings last month - details here. Keep an eye on their Facebook page here for the next one!

Bees Knees

This is a mead take on the classic 1920's prohibition era cocktail. Honey and lemon was added to mask the taste and smell of bathtub gin.

  • 1 measure of premium Irish Gin
  • 2 measures of Atlantic Dry Mead
  • ½ measure of honey syrup
  • ½ measure of fresh lemon juice

Shake and pour in a coupe cocktail glass with a lemon twist garnish.
The gins we mentioned were Beara Ocean Gin, Blacks of Kinsale, Dingle Gin and Gunpowder Gin.

Mulled Mead

A warming drink for cold winter evenings.

  • 1 bottle of Wild Red Mead
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Piece of star anise
  • Strip of orange peel
  • 2 tsp of honey to taste

Warm gently in a pan and soon the whole house will be filled with the lovely aromas. Serve in a heatproof glass. 

We're working on a version using Atlantic Dry Mead but we haven't perfected it yet. Trial and error! Watch this space. 

Mead Sangria

This Mead Sangria is summer in a glass, all year round!

  • ½ measure of Cointreau
  • 2 measures of Hazy Summer Mead
  • 1 ½ measures of cranberry juice
  • Dash of fresh lime
  • Serve over ice with an orange slice

You can substitute the Hazy Summer Mead with our Wild Red Mead. 

New mead cocktails coming so keep an eye out. We sometimes include them in our email newsletter along with other recipes such as the boozy chocolate and cranberry brownie recipe.
