Cocktails O’clock: Aranciata Cocktail

More than just a Rum & Orange, It’s a slice of heaven…

This cocktail is a rather new mixture, one using a great san pelligrino soda: Aranciata (or Orangeade).

This cocktail celebrates a great mixer with the classic addition of Rum & Lime.

A refreshing drink on a summers evening, rain or shine, this cocktail really will help you chill out…

Delicious and addictive this cocktail boasts a healthy dose of rum… Picture courtesy of http://www.marthastewart.com

Method:

1)      Fill a highball glass with ice and squeeze in a lime wedge (be sure to drop it in after, you’ll want the flavour the oils in the skin provide).

2)      Add in the Angostura and Rum.

3)      Stir well and top up with the Aranciata.

4)      Garnish with the other Lime wedge (wipe the glass’ rim and sit either just inside the glass or on the rim itself).

This cocktail is a great summer spritzer, and is part of the ‘family’ of Cuban style drinks. That is the pool of rum, lime and soda family of drinks. Refreshing and rather crisp (lime will do that for you) this cocktail is perfect for the family members wanting to try something a little new, but it isn’t too strong as to ruin the experience for them.

Should you like Blood Orange, try San Pellegrino’s Aranciata Rossa (Red Orangeade), it’s slightly bolder in flavour but combine with a really flavourful rum like Kraken or Lambs Navy, it’s pretty special…
