Ready for a summer soirée? Get your shorts and flip flops (not forgetting your trusty vape device) at the ready as we share some classic cocktail recipes inspired by our most sunny e-liquids and liquidpods.

If you like Green Apple, why not try an Appletini?



  • 50ml vodka

  • 15ml apple schnapps

  • 15ml apple juice

  • 10ml lemon juice

This sweet and tasty 90’s favourite is summer in drink form. One of the most popular fruit martinis, the appletini is fresh and light on the palette.

Simply mix vodka, apple schnapps, apple juice and lemon juice together in a cocktail shaker before straining into a martini glass. Finish off with an apple slice to garnish and you’re good to go. For best results, freeze the martini glass beforehand.

  • 1.5 cups tequila

  • 2 pints strawberries

  • 1.5 pints raspberries

  • ½ pint blackberries

  • ½ cup lime juice

  • 2/3 cups sugar

  • 2.5 cups ice

Berry cocktails are as sweet as they come, and this margarita is packed with three types of berries.

Before mixing, add sugar to the rim of your chosen glass. Next, mix your berries and lime juice in a blender until puréed. Strain this mixture and then add to the blender along with tequila and ice until smooth. Garnish with lime and voila; a berry cocktail that hits the spot.

For a more slush-like consistency, leave the ingredients in the blender for longer with additional ice just before serving.

If you like Cherry Mix, why not try a Cherry Gin Sling?

cherry gin sling


  • 1 cup gin

  • 1/3 cup Cointreau

  • 1.3 cup fresh lime juice

  • 1 cup sour cherry syrup (if homemade - 1/2 cup sour cherries, ¼ cup sour cherry spread, ½ cup water, and lemon zest)

  • Angostura bitters

  • Sparkling water

  • Limes

Cherry season is here! A sweet and sour variation of the Singapore sling, this concoction has a sour-cherry syrup base and is perfect for gin lovers.

The key to a good sour cherry gin sling is the syrup. While you can purchase pre-made syrup, homemade gives the cocktail an extra edge. To make the syrup yourself, bring your cherries, spread, water and lemon zest to the boil in a saucepan before covering and simmering for around half an hour.

Then, cool the syrup and take a large pitcher. Put your gin, Cointreau, 4 dashes of bitters and sparkling water into the pitcher and combine with the syrup. Pour over ice and garnish with lime.

This tropical tipple is tailor-made for summer parties. To prepare this exotic martini, begin with a shaker filled with ice cubes. Combine all ingredients at once and shake until smooth.
Then, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and finish with a mango garnish. A simple to make cocktail packed with complex tastes, this is a vibrant and lively thirst-quencher.

If you like Strawberry Mint, why not try a Strawberry Mojito?

strawberry mojito


  • 350ml white rum

  • 600ml sparkling water

  • 10 strawberries

  • 2 chopped limes

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 2 mint sprigs

  • Ice

White rum, mint, lime and sugar, with the addition of seasonal fruit – need we say more?

The first step of a good mojito is to place the strawberries and mint into a glass and muddle them together. You’ll know they’re ready once they’re congealed and juicy.

Next, get your ice, lime juice and rum into the glass and stir. Be careful not to stir overly vigorously to keep the mint away from the surface. Finally, top up the remainder of the glass with sparkling water and some more ice for a bubbly summer drink.

peach cocktail | in article image


  • 30ml vodka

  • 30ml cranberry juice

  • 30ml orange juice

  • 15ml peach liquer

  • Peach wedge for garnish (optional)

As satisfyingly easy to make as it is to say, a peach on the beach is a summer day’s dream. Made up of a mere four ingredients (or five, if you add a peach wedge), it’s as refreshing as they come.

Start by adding a glass with ice before following up with your vodka, juices and peach liqueur. Next, fill the rest with ice, stir, add your garnish, and you’re done!
