Our new entry is the Gingerlicious cocktail. It’s a very easy-going sparkling drink, a charming, fragrant, very easy to prepare cocktail you can serve during summer to quench your thirst during swimming pool parties or aperitivi.
The name is not accidental and is not given only by the fact that ginger is the main ingredient: Gingerlicious is a word used to define a beautiful red-haired woman, but from today you can also use it for your aperitifs.
The drink consists of vodka and champagne, then you can smell a gust of mint and then came cranberry juice, 2 slices of fresh ginger and the icing on the cake is rose water.
The alcohol content of this beauty is medium, so you can also safely sip it as an after-work recreational drink.
If you don’t like cranberry juice you can also substitute with strawberry nectar. Enjoy your cocktail!
