Coole Swan, the independently owned and family run Irish cream liqueur, is all about spending quality time with your Mum this Mother’s Day by spoiling her with The Divine Swan, one of its effortlessly simple but delicious cocktails.
Made from just three ingredients – Coole Swan Irish cream liqueur, coconut water and fresh basil – The Divine Swan delivers an irresistible combination of flavours that could not be easier to put together.
A refreshing modern craft blend of whiskey, chocolate, and cream, Coole Swan, is the perfect drink to enjoy chilled, over ice or in cocktails such The Divine Swan.
The innovators at Coole Swan push boundaries when it comes to getting creative with cream liqueur. The silky liquid is lighter than traditional cream liqueurs and plays well with other drinks. In this case the whiskey, chocolate and cream of Coole Swan blends perfectly with coconut and a hint of basil to make a fresh, modern cocktail that tastes as delicious as it is easy to make.
Whether you’re looking to impress your Mum or make a batch for a Mother’s Day family gathering, creating The Divine Swan couldn’t be simpler. All you need is 50ml of Coole Swan, 50ml of coconut water and four leaves of fresh basil. To serve, take three of the basil leaves and remove the stalks before clapping them between your hands and dropping them into a rocks or tumbler glass. Take the fourth basil leaf and wipe it around the rim of the glass before, optionally, attaching it to the rim with a small peg as a garnish. Pour the coconut water in on top of the basil leaves, followed by Coole Swan. Fill the glass with large ice cubes and thoroughly stir the mixture. Leave for two minutes, allowing the flavours to combine and then enjoy.
Coole Swan is available in Tesco, SuperValu, Dunnes, O’Brien’s and a range of independent retailers across Ireland. Available in a 700ml bottle which retails at €26.
