Whether you ordered a box of 3 or 2 mixers, each bottle of Dacha cocktail mixer is approximately 200ml and makes 4 or 5 cocktails depending on how fruity and aromatic you like yours.
We recommend a measure of 35/40ml of syrup for a cocktail. Or 30ml for a mild flavour.
Spirit staple suggestions for your home bar: gin, vodka, whiskey/bourbon, tequila, white rum. Secondary spirits: cointreau, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth, champagne or prosecco. For non-alcoholic drinks it's fun to have lemonade, kombucha, water kefir, ginger beer and premium tonic water.
You can create an unlimited number of different cocktails with the Dacha syrups. Below are some recipes and suggestions on what you can try. Experiment, get creative and try different flavours! All the cocktails are very easy to make within a couple of simple steps. You don't need any specialty bar equipment. Even if you don't have a shaker at home, you can use a flask to shake the cocktail ingredients with ice :)
50ml bourbon or whiskey, 25/30ml lime or lemon juice, 40ml of syrup, 1 egg white (you can leave the egg white out if you don’t like it or to make the cocktail vegan)
Shake the egg white on its own with a cube of ice in the shaker, then add all the other ingredients with a handful of ice, shake vigorously and strain into a glass.
50ml tequila, 25ml lime juice, 20ml cointreau, 40ml rhubarb syrup - shake with lots of ice and strain. Rub a wedge of lime on the glass rim and dip into salt
50ml gin, 20ml lime or lemon juice, 20ml dry vermouth, 30/35ml raspberry & thyme syrup. We like making it with egg white, which you can leave out if you want.
Add an egg white to the shaker with a cube of ice and shake hard. Then just top the shaker with a handful of ice, add all other ingredients, shake again and strain into the glass.
Whiskey/Bourbon, ice, dash of syrup (to your own taste)
Add 40ml of any Dacha syrup to a glass of chilled prosecco/champagne and serve over ice for refreshing drink
25ml gin, 25ml Dacha orange & basil syrup, 25ml sweet vermouth. Just mix everything in a glass with ice and enjoy. Delicious treat after a lovely meal :)

50ml gin, 35ml Dacha Orange and Basil cocktail mixer, 25/30ml lime or lemon juice, 1 egg white. Add an egg white to the shaker with 1 ice cube, shake hard for a few seconds. Add more ice and the rest of the ingredients. Shake till the shaker gets really cold and strain into a glass.
50ml white rum, 40ml of any syrup, 20ml lime juice, soda water and fresh mint. Muddle the mint in a tall glass, add ice followed by rum, syrup and lime juice, top with soda water.
50/60ml white rum, 20ml lime juice, 40/50ml of any syrup, 100g ice. Add everything into a blender and blend until slushy. Substitute rum for tequila & add 20ml cointreau for frozen margarita!

40/50ml gin, 40ml of any syrup, 20ml lime or lemon juice, top with soda water in a glass filled with ice and mix around
Super super easy to make - just substitute any spirit from the above recipes with an alcohol free gin, or mix a measure of any syrup (to taste) with ice, tonic water, kombucha, soda water, sparkling water, lemonade, ginger beer etc., add some lime or lemon juice if you want, and garnish if you want :) Enjoy!
