Summer in a Glass…The Ultimate Summer Cocktail {Summer Sun-day}

Woohoo! We’re at Week 9 of the Summer Sun-day series – how many of you have been making along with me? As it’s the last week of the series, I wanted to congratulate you all with a really quick and easy make that is totally delicious and the perfect way to celebrate. Why not serve in a wine glass so you can use your wine glass coaster we made back in Week 1?

I love this cocktail as it really does taste like Summer, of being somewhere tropical and of relaxing. What I absolutely love the most is the colour…how many cocktails do you see that are green? It is very simple primary colour mixing from the ingredients but it is always a talking point when you serve this to friends. I love making this cocktail for people, watch them screw their nose up at the colour, then be pleasantly surprised when they take a sip! Seriously, have a go and make your own, you won’t be disappointed:

  • 1 x 25ml shot of white rum
  • 1 x 25 ml shot of blue curacao
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice to mix – you can put in as much or as little as you like…I would recommend 100ml

That’s it, three ingredients, add them to your glass in that order and enjoy! Why not serve over crushed ice for the ultimate summer treat?
