Take Your Taste Buds on a Trip to Sicily!

There’s no denying it 99% of the population love summer! That is definitely a real stat that we didn’t make up 😉 And nothing screams summer like BBQ’s with your mates, swimming in $30 Kmart kiddie pool and a drool-worthy summer cocktail. However I have a little secret, as much as I love a Mojito or Cosmo (or anything fruity and alcoholic), there’s a certain little joy when you find a new summer cocktail that’s easy to mix up and makes you look like a bartender god. That’s how I felt when I discovered the ‘Fresh Sicilian’ cocktail!

This fruity little number has certain elements of a mojito but with a citrus twist using Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur. Turns out Solerno is the only blood orange liqueur (in the world) that uses the fruit from hand-picked Sicilian blood orange trees #justalittlefancy Plus it tastes pretty darn fresh in a cocktail.

So #TreatYoTastebuds and enjoy an Sicilian summer all year round! You can thank us later, when you are 3 cocktails deep.

Fresh Sicilian Summer Cocktail Recipe

 

Ingredients

  • 60ml Solerno Blood Orange Liquer
  • 20ml Freshly Squeezled Lime Juice
  • 6 Mint Leaves
  • Soda Water

Method

  1. Add Solerno, lime juice and mint leaves to an ice filled highball glass.
  2.  Top with soda water
  3. Garnish with a mint sprig and orange wheel

Voila! New not-so-secret summer cocktail recipe. I taste tested this nectar of the gods with @missviewfinder and as you can see below she’s freakin’ excited by this delish tipple #CocktailSlay

 

You can pick up a bottle of Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur to whip up your own summer cocktail from Dan Murphy’s, Vintage Cellars and First Choice Liquor. It will set you back around $59 but that investment will bring you numerous cocktails (that don’t need additional alcoholic ingredients) and moments of pure joy 🍊
