If you’re like me, chances are you’re ready for the sun and some yummy cocktails on a patio as soon as humanly possible. The winter months have dragged on long enough in my opinion – and that’s saying a lot consider I’m not one to complain about the weather.
Although April 19th might not be t-shirt and patio weather just yet, it is a good reason to create a few cocktails for yourself and those you love. It is after all #DisaronnoDay, and to help get you inspired in partnership with our friends at DISARONNO, I’m sharing three delicious cocktail recipes that are going to blow their minds.
I have a hard time believing there are any Canadians out there who haven’t enjoyed this distinct brand for themselves with family or friends. For those unfortunate few – it’s time to join the club!
Disaronno®, the liqueur with an original taste and unmistakable aroma, comes from a secret recipe kept by the Reina family since 1525, and from the expertly balanced mix of carefully selected high-quality ingredients.
With warmer weather around the corner any day, it’s time to warm things up for your guests too. Here are three of my MUST Disaronno cocktail recipes that are easy to make and absolutely delicious. Don’t believe me? You’ll have to try all three and tell me which if your favourite!
1 part Disaronno®
1 parts of your favorite whiskey
Pour over large ice and stir.
2 parts Disaronno®
4 parts ginger beer
1 part lime juice
Pour ingredients in the ice filled mug and gently stir.
While I can always trust the Disaronno website for delicious cocktails like those two above (click here for even more), you all know how much I love to make my own Do The Daniel creations. So, inspired by the season I decided to create a variation on a classic Paloma.
“The paloma is a tequila-based cocktail. This drink is most commonly prepared by mixing tequila with a grapefruit-flavored soda such as Fresca, Squirt, or Jarritos and served on the rocks with a lime wedge. Adding salt to the rim of the glass is also an option.”
DISARONNO® Paloma Punch
2 parts Disaronno®
1 part of your favourite tequila
1 part grapefruit juice
Soda water or your favourite grapefruit flavoured sparkling beverage
Pour the first three ingredients in the ice filled shaker and gently stir. Pour into a rocks glass and add soda water / grapefruit drink to taste. For traditional paloma you can add salt to the rim of your glass before pour.
A slice, round or wedge of fresh grapefruit
This sweet and sour combination is playfully perfect in my opinion and it will be my cocktail of choice on the 19th while I celebrate #DisaronnoDay here in Toronto. Whether you’re a purest who enjoys Disaronno on the rocks or you want to get playful with these three recipes with your family and friends, I encourage you to raise a glass with us and cheers in the best way possible with one of my favourite traditions.
