Mixing Tips

General

  • Start with the cheapest ingredients (the syrup) first.

Glassware

  • A chilled glass keeps your drink longer and more enjoyable. Your used ice will melt slower, and the taste will stay longer.

Technique

  • To release some more of the flavor of the herb, you can add it to the shaker, muddle it shortly and shake it with the drink together.
  • If you double-strain the drink after shaking it, it will prevent those tiny particles of the herbs or spices from floating on top of the guest's glass.

Garnish

  • Always use fresh herbs for the garnish.

Editor Recipe Notes

The Sicilian Love is a herbal riff on the Cosmopolitan cocktail.
Instead of serving this drink in a coupette glass, we like to use a wine glass to capture more of the rosemary aroma.

The main ingredient is Companion Sicilian Orange, a herbal aperitif with aromatic herbs such as wormwood, marjoram, and chiretta. This combination, together with cranberry, orange liqueur, and some lemon, is really a crowd pleaser.

Don’t forget to double-strain the drink. It might happen that some of the rosemary particles are going into the glass, not that nice to chew on it.
