The weather in Australia is so hot right now as summer is practically sprinting it’s tan body at us. The days are long, sun is blisteringly hot, and all we need some damn refreshments please!
To find the perfect summer drink, I’ve teamed up with Agent99 Public Relations in Sydney to introduce the new Solerno drink – a beautifully made blood orange liqueur from Lesley Gracie. Solerno is the world’s first blood orange liqueur that is made from Siciliy’s blood oranges, named Sanguinello.
The Sanguinello from Sicily’s Mt Etna is the perfect combination of bittersweet, and spice, and picked when the fruit is at it’s most vibrant, and flavourful. So for my summer, I'll definitely have a glass or two of Solerno Serata!
45ml Solerno Liqueur (40% alcohol)
30ml Ruby Grapefruit Juice
60ml Sparkling Water
2 Dashes of Orange Bitters (38% alcohol)
How to make:
Combine all ingredients in a glass on ice, stir, and top it off with a sprig of rosemary for that extra touch!
