Four fantastic raspberry cocktails

schnapps-raspberry-wildbrumby

It’s raspberry season! That means two things. Picnics with friends in the autumn sun and blushing pink glasses filled with schnappy, raspberry cocktails.

Each raspberry from our patch is plucked by hand in their prime from a ripe maroon harvest and turned into one of three things: a delightful non-alcoholic raspberry syrup, our famous Rubus Patch Gin, or — our scrumptious wildbrumby raspberry schnapps!

Our seasonal raspberry schnapps is sweet, tart and a little bit sassy. This vibrant berry has a knack for bringing excitement to any drink, which is why we keep an organically grown raspberry patch mere steps from our distillery door.

Filled to the brim with juicy raspberries, this schnapps is perfect to sip neat alongside a chocolate rich dessert or a selection of your favourite cheeses.

However, if we caught your attention at ‘blushing pink glasses filled with schnappy, raspberry cocktails’, we’ve got you covered. Here are four raspberry crazed cocktails you’ll want to try out and share with friends — or maybe just keep for yourself.


Raspberry Collins

Our Raspberry Collins recipe is a velvety, bubbly treat that boasts notes of vibrant berry and zesty lime. This is your no-fuss cocktail addition to an afternoon of friends and fruity cheese platters.

Ingredients:

30mL wildbrumby Raspberry schnapps
30mL Rubus Patch Gin

30mL Raspberry syrup

20ml fresh lime juice

Soda water

Method:
Add all your ingredients except the soda water to a big ice-filled glass. Give it a good stir with a bar spoon, then top with soda water. Garnish with mint, lime and fresh raspberries.

Alternatively, replace the raspberry syrup and lime juice with 15mL lemon juice and sugar syrup. Add a twist of lemon rind, and voila! You have a refreshing and Instagram-worthy cocktail in hand — thanks to the blushing hue of our raspberry schnapps.


Clover Club

Elegant, foamy and oh so tasty. The Clover Club has long been a drink associated with decadence and showmanship. Both our raspberry forward rubus patch gin and raspberry schnapps come together to create the ultimate pink drink.

Watch as this freshly shaken drink turns from a cloud of white to an exuberant pink in your glass!

If you’ve got a flashy Easter event planned this is the drink your guests will be talking about for days after.

Ingredients:
45mL wildbrumby raspberry schnapps
60mL wildbrumby rubus patch gin
20mL lemon juice
30mL chickpea Juice

Clover-Club-Cocktail

Method:
Add all ingredients to an ice filled bar shaker. Shake thoroughly and strain into a chilled martini coup. Garnish with three raspberries on a cocktail pick or put your new lemon twist skills to good use.


Razzamatazz Gin Fizz

If you’re here for pink bubbly sips enjoyed whilst dancing in the afternoon sun — look no further! This picnic party drink is aptly named the razzmatazz gin fizz for its glitzy raspberry notes and a tart grapefruit bite.

Ingredients:
30mL wildbrumby raspberry schnapps
30mL wildbrumby classic gin
30mL grapefruit juice
soda water

Method:
Begin by filling a bar shaker with ice before adding all ingredients excluding the soda water. Shake thoroughly till the outside of your bar shaker is evenly frosted. Strain over ice into a highball glass and top with soda water.

Garnish with a half wheel of grapefruit and two fresh raspberries.

Raspberry-Gin-Fizz

Madame Rouge

One sip of this boozy, raspberry milkshake and you’ll be wanting to serve it with a side of fresh scones.

The Madam Rouge is also a perfect dessert cocktail. So, leave the ice-cream in the fridge, pick up your bar shaker and show off your cocktail making skills!

Ingredients:
45mL wildbrumby raspberry schnapps
30mL wildbrumby rubus patch gin
30mL cream
2 teaspoons raspberry jam

Wildbrumby celebrates 20 years of distilling

Let’s raise a glass to pure Australian mountain spirits crafted in the heart of the Snowy Mountains.

Wildbrumby distillery, a pioneer of the Australian spirits industry, is proud to be celebrating its 20th year anniversary.

It was way back in 2003 that wildbrumby founders Brad and Monika Spalding set out to create a haven for distilling and the arts in the stunning Snowy Mountains region.

Over the past two decades the distillery has become a staple of the Australian spirits scene, winning numerous awards for unique and delicious products.

It is also a regular sponsor of local charities and sporting events, and in 2022 was named ‘Business of the Year’ at the 2022 Jindabyne’s Citizen Award Ceremony.

Using locally sourced ingredients, the distillery has become the most recognised schnapps distillery in Australia, attracting visitors from all around the world.

“Twenty years ago, we had a vision to create a distillery that would produce world-class spirits using the purest water from the Snowy Mountains,” said Brad Spalding.

“Today, we are proud to have established a distillery that is not only recognised in Australia but also globally, winning numerous awards across our unique product range.”

The distillery produces a wide range of fruit-based schnapps and in 2018, its flagship product, peach nectar, was a gold medalist at the Australian Distilled Spirits awards. IT was also named Apple Schnapps Distillery of the year at the Melbourne International Spirits Competition.

Wildbrumby also produces a popular range of gin featuring locally-sourced botanicals, with each variety striking gold at international spirits competitions in years past.

Brad and Monika are champions of the arts and have embedded their own artistic vision throughout the distillery, where works from various artists are showcased, including those by Brad (aka Spalding), who is an accomplished artist in his own right.

Distillery visitors can also stroll through the extensive sculpture garden which offers an immersive art experience that is designed to inspire, delight and provoke as it seamlessly blends with the natural surroundings.

To mark its 20-year milestone, wildbrumby is planning a series of events and activities throughout the year, starting on April 7 (Good Friday) with the Hip Replacements playing live music at the distillery from 1.00 – 4.00pm.

“We are excited to celebrate our 20th year anniversary with the community that has supported us throughout the years,” said Brad Spalding.

“So come raise a glass for wildbrumby, one of the pioneers of the Australian craft distillery scene, and here’s to many more years of delicious schnapps and spirits!”

Beautiful butterscotch

butterscotch-schnapps

Take a walk on the wonderful side with this super-smooth favourite – butterscotch schnapps.

Without giving away all our secrets, our butterscotch schnapps has been a cocktail favourite since it hit the shelves for two simple reasons; a top-secret recipe of real butterscotch and our signature ingredient — pink lady apples.

Fruit is essential to creating authentic traditional schnapps and it is the addition of apples that brings that ‘home-cooked’ sweetness that butterscotch fans can’t get enough of.

And what’s the most popular way to drink this butterscotch treat? In a warm mug of spiked cappuccino, also known as the ‘Schnappychino’, or drizzled over a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Yum!

But there’s so much more you can create with this popular variety of schnapps — especially when the weather turns cooler. So read on for some seasonal inspiration.


Butterscotch Mule

Move over simple syrup — the classic Moscow Mule just became a whole lot tastier with our butterscotch schnapps. This drink is the perfect balance between ginger zing and a depth of rich toffee, without becoming overly sweet. And the best part? You don’t need any fancy bar tools to enjoy it. Just build over ice in your favourite glass.If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth, try this recipe with 60mL of our butterscotch schnapps and remove the vodka. 

Ingredients:
40mL wildbrumby butterscotch schnapps
20mL wildbrumby Kosciuszko vodka
120mL ginger ale
fresh lime

How to make it:
Add our butterscotch schnapps and Kosciuszko vodka to an ice filled copper mug. If you don’t have a copper mug in your home bar, a chilled glass will work just as well.
Squeeze two quarter pieces of lime into the mug before adding the quarters to the drink. Pour in 120mL of ginger ale and stir before serving.


Winter Whiteout

This butterscotch duo is a fun winter favourite for snowsports enthusiasts that is ever-so-simple to put together in a shot glass and then share with a friend or five.

Ingredients: 
30mL butterscotch schnapps
20mL Irish Cream (eg Baileys)

How to make it:
Pour butterscotch schnapps into a shot glass until about 2/3 full.

Top up shot glass with Irish Cream by pouring slowly it over the back of a small spoon to keep it separated from the schnapps. 

*For a punchier variation, replace the Irish Cream with Spiced Rum to create a ‘Burt Reynolds’.


Butterscotch Delight

A delightful way to deliver our beautiful butterscotch schnapps.

And the best part is that it’s as easy as it sounds to create, with a sublimely smooth, velvety texture that accentuates its wonderfully rich butterscotch foundations.

Ingredients:
45mL wildbrumby Butterscotch Schnapps
30mL Kosciusko Vodka
45mL fresh cream

How to make it:
Add your Butterscotch Schnapps, Kosciuszko vodka and fresh cream to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously until the outside of your shaker is frosted. Strain through a sieve into a coupé glass and garnish with a sprinkle of chocolate powder.


Kosi Colada

If you like piña coladas — but the slopes beat the beach any day, then this is the cocktail for you! This butterscotch twist on the tropical classic looks like a fresh powdering of snow and tastes like Christmas in July.

Ingredients:
60mL pineapple juice
40mL wildbrumby butterscotch schnapps
20mL wildbrumby Kosciuszko vodka
2 tbsp coconut cream
canned pineapple slices
brown sugar and ground cinnamon

How to make it:
Prepare your pineapple garnish by mixing a tablespoon of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon in a bowl. Cut a pineapple slice in half and cover it in your sugar mixture. Lightly pan-fry the pineapple in butter for 1 minute each side. Allow time for your garnish to cool.

To make the cocktail, add pineapple juice, wildbrumby butterscotch schnapps and Kosciuszko vodka to an ice-filled bar shaker. Make sure to mix in the solids and liquids of your coconut cream before adding two tablespoons to your shaker. Shake vigorously to crush ice and create a smooth texture. You’ll know the cocktail is ready when frost forms on the outside of the tin. 

Pour contents of the bar shaker, including ice, into a tumbler glass. Garnish with a sugared half-slice of pineapple.


Liquid Apple-Butterscotch Pie

You might have seen us talk about this apple pie-inspired winter warmer before. It’s sweet, soul warming, and with an ample amount of our butterscotch schnapps you know we just had to include it in this list.

This recipe serves 4 friends, but with delicious toffee notes matched with cinnamon spice and apple sweetness — you’ll want a second serving all to yourself!

Better still, it’s low in alcohol volume. So, you can enjoy a little bit more after a long day on the slopes.

Ingredients:
400mL cinnamon tea
400mL sparkling apple juice
200mL wildbrumby butterscotch schnapps

How to make it:
Make the cinnamon tea by bringing 2 cups of water to a boil in a pot. Add 2 cinnamon sticks and allow the tea to simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes.

At the same time, heat 2 cups of sparkling apple juice in a separate pot and simmer till warm.

Once your cinnamon tea and sparkling apple juice are heated, add 100mL of each to a pre-heated mug and top with 50mL wildbrumby Butterscotch Schnapps. Repeat this step to achieve four serves and garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick.

You can find our wildbrumby butterscotch schnapps here.


Lady Butterscotch 

A steaming cup of hot chocolate has never been so luscious when you add these glorious additions (plus any/all of your favourite hot-choc toppings of course).

This one is best served warm while in the company of friends following an epic day on the mountain.

30mL butterscotch schnapps
20mL Irish Cream (eg Baileys)
200mL hot milk
1tsp hot chocolate powder (plus a little to sprinkle)
3tbsp whipped cream
1tbsp of mini marshmallows or other topping (optional)

How to make it:
Combine hot milk, Irish cream, butterscotch schnapps and 1 teaspoon of hot chocolate powder in a glass mug.

Top with whipped cream and a light sprinkle the remainder of chocolate powder sprinkled on top (plus mini marshmallows if you dare).

Pear it up with these summer cocktails

Pear-schnapps

Crunchy, green sweetness with a subtle tang – there’s something special that singles the Williams pear out from other pears when it comes to the art of crafting summery pear schnapps cocktails.

Also known as Poire William, these pears are commonly grown in the alpine regions of Switzerland, France, Germany and Austria – all places that love to turn this fascinating fruit into delicious schnapps. 

It’s often eaten straight from the tree or baked into traditional desserts such as the pear clafoutis and poached pears with cream, but it is most famously consumed as an eau-de-vie – or as we like to call it, the pear william schnapps.

Here in Australia’s alpine region of the Snowy Mountains, our pear william schnapps is made from the finest, orchard grown Williams pears. They’re the not-so-secret ingredient that gives this beloved schnapps a juicy, sweet, and fragrant bite.

Serving a nip of this delectable liquid alongside a nutty and fruit inspired cheese platter is a blissful pairing. But do read on if you’d like to discover more delectable pear combinations to have within reach on those sweltering summer afternoons.


Pear of Coconuts Mojito

Nothing sings summer more than a refreshing mojito (except, maybe this twist on the Cuban classic).

With notes of coconut, zingy lime, and our aromatic pear william schnapps – this cocktail will quickly become your poolside favourite!

Ingredients:

30mL wildbrumby pear william schnapps
30mL coconut water
lime
soda water

Method:

Muddle 2 wedges of lime in a highball glass before adding coconut water and our pear william schnapps. Then, top with ice and soda water. 

Hold off on that sprig of mint – you’ll want to garnish this bubbly, summery treat with a fan of pear slices!


Green Pear Mar-tea-ni

With sweet and earthy-green notes, you’ll want to keep this recipe pinned for year-round use. Plus, it’s batchable – and you know how much we love a pre-batched cocktail!

Ingredients:

45mL wildbrumby classic gin
45mL wildbrumby pear william schnapps
30mL cooled green tea

Method:

For this fragrant green tea and pear twist on the classic martini, we’re sticking with an easy 1:1 ratio. That’s 45mL of our wildbrumby classic gin and 45mL of our pear william schnapps. 

Uh, where is the green tea? You’re asking.

Here’s the genius part. Stirring down a cocktail in ice adds around 25 – 30% of cool, refreshing water. As well as keeping the temperature down, this helps to open up subtle flavours within the spirit. 

But adding tea to the mix from here will definitely leave the final product feeling watery and unbalanced. 

Thankfully there’s an easy fix – and it just so happens to make this cocktail perfect for batching. 

If you’re making this delicious treat for yourself, add 45mL of wildbrumby classic gin and 45mL of pear william schnapps to a sealable jar. Then brew your favourite green tea and once cooled, add 30mL to the jar. 

Pop it in the freezer and in half an hour you’ll have a perfectly balanced and chilled, Green Pear Martini.

Want to batch this cocktail for a BBQ with friends? Use an empty and clean wine bottle, and times the volume by your number of guests. When you’re ready to serve, pour 120mL into chilled martini glasses and garnish with slices of pear.

You can even batch the night before!


Pear William Fizz

After fancy without the fuss? We’ve got you covered. This drink dials up luscious fruit and vanilla notes without going overboard on alcohol volume.

Serve it with a spoon for a sweet pear treat waiting at the bottom of your glass!

Ingredients:

45mL wildbrumby pear william schnapps
soda water
vanillin sugar
pear

Method:

Chop half a pear into cubes and toss in a sprinkle of vanillin sugar. Fill 1/3 of a tumbler glass with the cubed pears and top with ice. Pour in our wildbrumby pear william schnapps and stir till ingredients are mixed. Top with soda water.

Now all you need is a little umbrella to match those summery fruit vibes.


Merry Peary

This low-fuss collaboration of pear schnapps, vodka and sparkling pear cider is a celebration of summer’s sweetest harvest.

This makes for great sipping on those balmy summer evenings when sunbeams stretch right across the sky.

Ingredients:

45 mL wildbrumby pear william schnapps
20 mL Vodka
120 mL Sparkling pear cider

Method:

This fruity favourite couldn’t be more simple. Add all the ingredients above to a long glass half filled with ice and then garnish with a slice of pear.


The Village

This complex layering of sweet and sour is a perfect pairing of summertime flavours in a deceptively simple cocktail. The blend of flavours is bursting with colour and style which makes it perfect for those spontaneous get togethers when friends or family drop by at short notice (hence the name!).

Ingredients:

45 mL wildbrumby pear william schnapps
30 mL wildbrumby Classic Gin
15 mL Lime Juice
60 mL cranberry juice

Method:

Add all ingredients to a cocktail mixer. Stir over ice until very cold then pour into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a lime wedge.

Mangoes are the summertime fruit that can be enjoyed any time of the day.

Get luscious with limoncello cocktail recipes

wildbrumby-limoncello-schnapps

Simple, sophisticated, and full of zest! This scrumptious, schnappy take on an old Italian favourite is bursting with lemon and just loves to be paired with something cold and carbonated to make a refreshing limoncello cocktail.

Steeped in the history of Southern Italy, each family would perfect their own unique limoncello recipe to serve up to esteemed guests as a digestif.

Wildbrumby’s own recipe was inspired by a trip to Naples, with perfectly sweet citrus notes from the zest of locally-sourced lemons.

If you’re already a fan of our limoncello, you might be familiar with our two favourite ways to serve this warm weather treat: on the rocks or as a limoncello & soda. 

But with flowers in full bloom and a beach somewhere calling your name – who would want to limit themselves with just ice and soda water? 

Our wildbrumby limoncello is the perfect ingredient to bring out your cocktail creativity. And we’re here to show you how to use it.

So here are four zesty drinks to help you celebrate spring and summer in style!


Limoncello Passion Spritz

40mL wildbrumby limoncello
20mL passionfruit pulp
wildbrumby brut (dry sparkling wine)
soda water

The Limoncello Passion Spritz is best enjoyed under full sun with good music on full blast! (And, hopefully, with a few friends… even if it’s just over zoom).

You can build this cocktail straight into your glass – no bar shakers and no clean-up afterward. First, add our wildbrumby limoncello and the passionfruit pulp to a large wine glass. Top with 90mL of wildbrumby brut and a splash of soda water. 

Lastly, fill your glass to the brim with ice. Want to keep your spritz flavourful till that last, golden drop? Then this is the most important step. Adding ice last ensures your spritz is evenly mixed and prevents it from diluting before it’s even served. 

Garnish your drink with a lemon wedge and a colourful paper straw for good measure!

passionfruit-limoncello-cocktail-recipe

Limoncello Meringue

60mL wildbrumby limoncello
30mL wildbrumby kosciuszko vodka
30mL fresh lemon juice
30mL aquafaba (chickpea juice)

The limoncello meringue is a sophisticated cocktail that is just bursting with lemony zest.

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake without ice for 15-20 seconds, then add ice and shake until the outside of your shaker is frosted.

Double strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

limoncello-meringue-cocktail

Limoncello Iced Tea

60mL wildbrumby limoncello
chilled chamomile tea
honey (optional)

Lemon and chamomile tea can be comforting on a cold winter night. But have you tried it iced and boozy on a warm sunny day? Well, forget home made lemonade. This is going to be your go-to!

To make 2 servings of this liquid sunshine, you’ll need to prepare 250mL of chamomile tea. Once brewed, allow your tea to reach room temperature and then chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.

All chilled? Now you’re ready to build this cocktail straight into a glass. 

Fill a highball glass with ice and place two lemon wheels down the inside of your glass to garnish. Add our wildbrumby limoncello and top with chilled chamomile tea. Serve with a paper straw.

If you’re after a little extra sweetness, add a drop of honey. 

limoncello-cocktail-recipe-iced-tea

Rubus, Limoncello & Tonic

20mL wildbrumby limoncello
30mL wildbrumby rubus patch gin
tonic
lemon
raspberries

Now what would a limoncello inspired cocktail list be without a riff on the classic Gin & Tonic? 

Our wildbrumby rubus patch gin is made using organic raspberries picked straight from our distillery gardens. Pink, pretty and a little bit tart – it makes a brilliant G&T combo with our wildbrumby limoncello. And it looks delectable too!

Firstly, pack a wide, stemless glass to the brim with lemon wheels, whole raspberries and ice. Pour our rubus patch gin and wildbrumby limoncello into your glass and top with tonic water. We suggest fever tree’s refreshingly light tonic water. 

Serve your Rubus, Limoncello & Tonic with a vibrant paper straw and an extravagant cheese platter.

limoncello-cocktail-recipe-rubus-patch

Lavender Limoncello Sour

30mL wildbrumby limoncello
30mL wildbrumby classic gin
20mL lavender simple syrup
20mL lemon juice
15mL aquafaba

Springtime is all about florals and vibrant flavours. Remember those lemon drop lollies you could only get at small country markets on a Sunday morning? Well, we just put together a cocktail with that exact vibe. 

To prepare your lavender simple syrup add 1 tablespoon of lavender tea, 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of water to a small pot. Place on a low heat and stir till most of the sugar has dissolved. Once dissolved, set the pot aside to cool. Strain your sugar syrup into an airtight container. Your lavender simple syrup will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks – But let’s be honest, it’ll be gone quicker than that!

To make your Lavender Limoncello Sour, add all your ingredients to a bar shaker with ice and shake thoroughly. You’ll know it’s ready when you see frost forming on the outside of the shaker. Strain your cocktail into a tumbler glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with half a lemon wheel and dry petals of lavender tea.

Lemon loves lavender! But if you don’t have lavender tea handy – try this cocktail with plain simple syrup. Trust us, you’ll love it just as much.
