Spices and botanicals for cocktails: The Soul of Cocktails

What is Mixology?

Much more than the preparation of drinks, mixology is the science and art of exploring the infinite possibilities of different ingredients to create unique cocktails. Botanicals and spices play a pivotal role here, providing the nuances that transform a simple drink into a complete sensory experience.

The essence of spices and botanicals.

What is a spice? Simply put, a spice is any part of a plant that is used to add flavour, aroma or colour to food and, of course, beverages. This includes seeds, fruits, roots, bark and leaves. Botanicals, on the other hand, are plants or parts of plants used for their aromatic or medicinal properties, especially in cocktail making.

Types of botanicals and their uses

Botanicals for cocktails range from classics like mint and rosemary to more exotic ones like orris root and elderflower. Each brings a different flavour and purpose:

  • Citrus: Lemon, orange, grapefruit for freshness and acidity.
  • Herbs: Basil, thyme, for an herbaceous touch.
  • Spices: Cinnamon, cardamom, for warmth and spice.
  • Flowers: Lavender, Rose, for fragrance and delicacy.

These botanicals are used in popular cocktails such as the Gin Tonic, in which juniper plays a starring role, or the Mojito, which would not be the same without its fresh mint. But there are also more unusual botanicals, such as wasabi, which adds an unexpected spiciness to signature cocktails.

Tips for using botanicals

To get the most out of these ingredients, it is important to

  • Experiment sparingly: Add a little at a time and adjust to taste.
  • Combine related flavours: Citrus with fresh herbs, spices with sweets.
  • Soak in advance: To allow the flavours to blend well.
