Party cocktail with Lambrini - Brini Bliss

Christmas drinks

Lambrini is often associated with girls' parties. You might remember the Do Lambrini ads from a decade ago. This light sparkling perry comes in a variety of flavours. On its own, this refreshing alcoholic drink is quite sweet.

Yet it is a perfect base for a good number of cocktails - you can find an inspiration for making your own creative cocktails at Lambrini Cocktails.
Lambrini Peach is a flavourful fruity smooth drink, it smells like an essence of summer - ripe peaches and sunshine.
While looking at the cocktail recipes, I liked the refreshing Brini Bliss the most, as it contains such ingredients as apple juice and cucumber water.
I have slightly adapted it, as my flutes are quite narrow and wouldn't accommodate the amount of liquid and ice suggested in the original recipe. I also skipped the ice altogether and just used all the ingredients chilled.

For one cocktail you will need:
50ml apple juice
25ml cucumber water
top up with Lambrini
decorate with a fresh cucumber skin ribbon

First pour the apple juice, then the cucumber water. You can make your own cucumber water by infusing the cucumber ribbons in cold water for 15 minutes or buy a ready-made one. I used Nuva cucumber and mint flavoured spring water and fresh pressed apple juice. Top up with Lambrini, decorate the glass with a fresh cucumber skin ribbon. Serve immediately.

It is a delightful cocktail, sweet-scented, fragrant and nectarous. My husband and I enjoyed it at dinnertime yesterday night. It is easy and quick to prepare, and doesn't need expensive ingredients and a whole collection of wine and other alcoholic drinks.
Are there any Lambrini cocktail recipes that you enjoy and would like to share with me?

Disclosure: I received a bottle of Lambrini Peach for the purposes of testing and reviewing. All opinions are our own.


  1. That looks nice. I have yet to try cucumber water but bet it goes really well with the peach.

    1. Thank you Alison! Lambrini was lovely, we finished the rest of it as as an apple juice spritzer. Cucumber water is very nice too, though it might be less expensive to make your own.
