I’m so excited about our 2016 #MixedWithTrop holiday drink! This year, I’ve come to love sidecars for their smoke forward bite. I had one recently with tangerine and lemon added – it was one of my favorite drinks ever! The tangerine adds a sweet note, taking some of the bite out of the alcohol. For our recipe, we switched out the juices for a mix of Tropicana Tangerine Lemonade and added a little rosemary to create an earthy taste. The drink comes together quickly and will be served generously at all our holiday celebrations.
As a festive touch, , we added a tangerine peel garnish., Use a sugar cookie cutter to cut out holiday shapes from tangerine peels and place in the glasses to create drinks that burst with holiday flavor and holiday fun!
Rosemary Tangerine Sidecar
To make this fresh holiday drink you will need:
- 2 oz Tropicana Tangerine Lemonade
- 2 oz Cognac
- 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
Combine the ingredients through ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a bar glass. Add the rosemary and cookie cutter tangerine garnishes for a drink that will inspire a wonderful holiday night.
This post is done in partnership with Tropicana Premium Tangerine Lemonade, a taste I adore! Please celebrate well and drink responsibly this holiday season.
