12 of the best summer cocktails for the Med season

12 of the best summer cocktails for the Med season

1 of 12 1/12

Sakura Sour

Whether you're anchoring in an isolated bay or attending one of the events not to miss in the Mediterranean this season, no superyacht vacation should be without a sunset cocktail hour complete with expertly mixed drinks. If your crew mastered the rum cocktails every superyacht bartender should know for the Caribbean season then set them a new challenge with our pick of the best summer cocktails for Med season.

Sakura Sour

Just because the yachting season has moved to the Med doesn't mean you need to leave all the tropical vibes behind. Created using a host of unusual ingredients, including kumquat puree, Hibiki Harmony whisky, chu hai peach and sakura tincture, this sophisticated cocktail is far more impressive than your average G&T.


35ml Hibiki Harmony

25ml kumquat puree

25ml lime juice

10ml sugar syrup

20ml egg white

35ml chu hai peach

2 drops sakura tincture

Rose petal to garnish


  1. Shake all ingredients together
  2. Strain into coupe or wide stemmed glass
  3. Garnish with a rose petal

Suntory Hibiki Harmony whisky, £65.55 for 70cl, The Whisky Exchange
