Mojito

A classic cocktail from Cuba that has distinct mint and lime flavours

70 ml Celebracion Mojito pre-mixed cocktail
50 ml Ronsin (non-alcoholic rum)
70 ml sparkling water
1/4 lime - sliced
3 sprigs of mint
Crushed ice

Put the Mojito cocktail and sliced lime into a glass and mash together (only 3-4 hard crushes). Remove the leaves from 2 mint sprigs and place in the palm of your hand.  Slap with the other hand to release the oils and aroma and add to the cocktail.  Add the Ronsin and sparkling water and then fill with crushed ice.  Stir.  Garnish with the other mint sprig and maybe a slice of lime.

You may need to experiment with the amount of lime you crush into the cocktail.  The pre-mix has a distinct lime flavour and too much lime may obscure the refreshing mint flavour.

This recipe make a glass (250 ml) of cocktail.

Coco Loco

This is a delightful cocktail that celebrates the milky taste and whiteness of coconut.

80 ml Celebracion Coco Loco pre-mixed cocktail
50 ml Ronsin (non-alcoholic rum)
80 ml Coconut milk or coconut cream (or dairy milk)
Crushed ice 

Put the first three ingredients into a wide mouthed glass and stir. Add the crushed ice – it’s that simple.  Garnish with a slice of pineapple or a cherry.   

The Ronsin adds that rummy complexity and is what makes this cocktail so delightful.

To be really decadent, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream before filling with ice and stir in. Alternatives to coconut milk (or dairy milk) are pineapple or mango juice.    

This recipe makes a glass (250 ml) of cocktail.

San Fransico

A classic cocktail from the USA celebrating you guessed it, the sunshine of San Francisco.

90 ml Celebracion San Francisco pre-mixed cocktail
50 ml Versin (non-alcoholic vermouth)
60 ml Orange Juice
I/4 of a Fresh Orange
Crushed ice 

Put the San Francisco cocktail and thinly sliced ¼ orange into a glass and mash together (only 3-4 hard crushes). Add the Versin and Orange juice and fill with crushed ice.  Garnish with a slice of orange or sprig of mint. 

There is meant to be a little bitterness in this cocktail which the Versin brings.

A way to add a layer of colour to this cocktail is to: before adding the ice, pour 10 ml of Grenadine into the mixture – do NOT stir. This will settle to the bottom and leave a bright red colour. Carefully add the ice so as not to disturb the layers of colour and, voila, a delightful cocktail resembling a west coast sunset!   

This recipe makes a glass (250 ml) of cocktail.
