Enjoy Chocolate for Grown-Ups with Coole Swan Cocktails this Easter & Beyond

Coole Swan, the independently owned and family run Irish cream liqueur, has launched three fresh new Coole Swan cocktails to be enjoyed this Easter long-weekend and beyond.

Whiskey, chocolate and cream are the three perfectly blended ingredients in Coole Swan and these serves offer grown-ups an alternative way to get their chocolate fix during the long weekend and into summer. Perfect for creating a wow factor when hosting, the signature serves include the silky Coole Blue, the fresh Coole Smooth and a Coole Swan twist on a classic, the Coole Grasshopper.

Nothing on the drinks market compares to the versatility and quality of Coole Swan, a refreshing modern craft blend of whiskey, chocolate and cream. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy chilled, over ice or in a diverse and exciting range of cocktails. As always, 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. For the Easter long weekend and then into summer, Coole Swan encourages fans of Irish cream liqueur to try a fresh and fun approach to cocktails. For those who want to add a drop of luxury to their every day, try one (or all) of these delicious Coole Swan cocktails!

Coole Swan is available in TescoSuperValuDunnesO’Brien’s and a range of independent retailers across Ireland. Available in a 700ml bottle which retails at €26.

Coole Blue:

This silky sky blue Coole creation packs a punch. Combining Coole Swan, Blue Curacao, Grand Marnier and Tequila Blanco this serve is perfect for those who enjoy an orange hit with their chocolate; a modern take on a classic pairing. For the pièce de resistance Coole Swan recommends garnishing with an edible orchid to make a real statement when hosting.

  • 25ml Coole Swan
  • 15ml Blue Curacao
  • 35ml Grand  Marnier
  • 15ml Tequila Blanco
  • Edible flower to garnish e.g. orchid

Serve – Fill a coupe glass with ice and leave to chill. Add all the ingredients to an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake thoroughly for ten seconds. Remove ice from the now chilled coupe glass and then  strain the mixture in before garnishing.

Coole Smooth:

If Coole Swan did champagne, this would be it. Coole Swan, cooled chai tea, spiced rum, cinnamon syrup and sweet brown sherry are shaken together to produce a light, spiced, perfectly balanced and very moreish cocktail. Topped with maraschino cherries and served in a champagne flute, the Coole Smooth makes a fun and refreshing celebration or welcome drink.

  • 25ml Coole Swan
  • 100ml Twinning’s Dark Chai
  • 25ml Spiced Rum
  • 15ml Monin Cannelle
  • 15ml Sweet Brown Sherry
  • Maraschino cherries to garnish

Serve – Brew the chai tea, using 8 tea bags and 400ml of cold water. (You’ll have enough to make four Coole Smooths.) Once the tea is well brewed, pour 100ml into an ice filled shaker alongside the other ingredients and shake. Strain into a chilled flute glass and serve, garnished with skewered maraschino cherries.

Coole Grasshopper:

This classic cocktail has been reimagined with a Coole Swan twist. Famous for its minty kick, green glow and silky smooth texture, it’s the perfect pour to enjoy at home with family and friends. Combining Coole Swan, Crème de Menthe and Crème de Cacao, this serve is simple yet powerfully flavourful, combining two palate pleasers – mint and chocolate. The Coole Grasshopper is ideal for an at-home celebration… or on any night of the week for that matter. To be garnished with a chocolate straw or grated chocolate.

  • 25ml Coole Swan
  • 20ml Briottet Cacao Blanc
  • 20ml Crème de Menthe
  • Grated chocolate or chocolate straw to garnish

Serve – Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass alongside two ice cubes and stir for one minute. Once well combined, strain the mixture into a coupe glass before adding a garnish of choice.
