Spanish sunset

A jazzed-up vodka orange cocktail with fresh orange juice, orange liqueur and cava.



What better way to cool off in the Balearics than with a Spanish sunset cocktail. The iced citrusy flavour of freshly squeezed Spanish orange, sweet and smooth orange liqueur, mixed with the clean refreshing taste of vodka and all finished off with a cheeky Cava fizz. This is an easy to make drink packed full of summer flavour. Relax and enjoy as sunset turns into sundown with this crowd pleasing fruity but elegant cocktail.
