Sicilian Love mixed by MyBeverageGuide

The Sicilian Love is a wonderful riff on the Cosmopolitan. We changed the Vodka with Companion, a bitter Aperitif with Sicilian orange. The sprig of rosemary pairs well with all flavours.
The recipe is my own signature.

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.
