About Three Spirit:
Three Spirit is the world’s first plant-powered functional trio of elixirs, created by a group of bartenders and scientists. Delivering on both function and taste, the drinks innovation company is driven by plants and pleasure harnessing the potential of active botanicals and alchemy to push boundaries and make alcohol-free mean more. Recipes for each elixir are included below. The Three Spirit range includes:
Livener – a vibrant, powerful drink designed to liven the senses + get the party started!
This twist on the Cuban classic packs a punch and awakens the senses. Fresh lime marries with the fire, fruit and energising plants of the Livener for the perfect summer pick-me-up.
2 fl oz Livener
1/2 fl oz Lime juice
1 Barspoon Demerara Sugar
This drink works amazingly with extra ingredients, so you can be as creative as you want as to what extra flourishes you put in!
Add ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker (or jam jar) and shake hard. Strain into a cocktail glass or blend into a slushie with fresh fruit, if that’s your thing!
Social Elixir – the ultimate social companion and mood elevator
Social Cold Brew
2 fl oz Social Elixir
1 fl oz cold brew coffee
Ice cold tonic water
Add Social Elixir and coffee to high ball glass and fill with ice to the top.
Top halfway with tonic and stir to combine.
Add more ice and fill glass with tonic.
Garnish with a lemon wheel.
Nightcap – a calming drink to soothe the body after a long day (or night!)
Zen Hot Toddy

2 fl oz Nightcap
2 barspoons maple syrup
5 fl oz boiling water
Big lemon wheel, studded with 8 cloves
1 star anise
Optional dash of whisky for a low abv drink
