It may be the budget choice but a bottle of Liebfraumilch hardly screams style and sophistication at a dinner party. However drinks bottle suppliers have been catching on, coming up with a selection of delectably presented versions of pretty standard drinks that will look great in any glass fronted cabinet or taking centre stage on a retro bar cart. Consider the bottles used for Dodd’s Gin, Crystal Head Vodka, Hendrick’s Gin or Don Julio Blanco, for example. See also Gin Mare, St Germain elderflower liqueur, Chambord Raspberry Liquor or Reyka Vodka.
You may not be able to stretch to the cost of some of these but you can add a bit of class to your own drinks provisions by decanting your more average spirits or liqueurs into attractive bottles.
Empty drinks bottles from Wares of Knutsford
The Wares range of empty drinks bottles incorporates both plastic and glass bottles in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Brightly coloured versions are ideal for making soft drinks look more appealing to non-drinkers or children, while there are classic shapes of beer, cider and wine bottles that can be used to house home brewed efforts or to disguise a less than illustriously labelled original. Consider adding a neatly designed label to rival professional drinks bottle suppliers.
Bottles are available singly or in value for money packs, and Wares of Knutsford’s delivery charge is the same no matter how many you order, allowing you to take advantage of economies of scale. Delivery is swift and all bottles are carefully packed to make sure they arrive safely.
Home made lemonade for empty drinks bottles
Give your crisp, sweet homemade refreshments a nostalgic, retro air by presenting them in swing stopper bottles. It’s easy and homely but with a natural sophistication to it. The key to home made lemonade is in the sugar syrup.
To make six servings:
- 1 cup each of water and sugar
- Juice of six lemons
- 4 cups of cold water
To make the sugar syrup, add the one cup of sugar and one cup of water to a small saucepan. Heat gently, stirring regularly, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
Mix the sugar syrup, lemon juice and cold water together until thoroughly combined and serve in a tall jug with plenty of ice and a few slices of lemon.
Increase or reduce the quantities of lemon or sugar to taste if you prefer a sweeter or sharper drink. Furthermore, try using cold, sparkling water instead of plain for a fizzy version or add the juice of a handful of raspberries to make pink lemonade.
