  • 1 ounce citrus juice orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit
  • 1 ounce simple syrup very easy to make using water and sugar
  • 2 ounces spirit vodka, gin, tequila, rum


  • Add the ingreidnets into a cocktail shaker and shake, then strain over ice.
  • OR add the ingredients into a glass filled with ice and give it a good stir for 20 seconds.
  • Garnish with an herb or a slice of citrus.


You have the option to shake or stir your mixed drinks. We personally like them shaken with ice but a good stir will do too. 
Have fun with these mixed drinks. Try different combinations and see what you like the most.
