Details of how to make fresh orange cocktail
Step 1: Prepare the ingredients
The first thing you need to do when making fruit cocktails in general and fresh cocktails in particular is to prepare the fruit ingredients first by washing them with water and salt. Then, you slice the orange into small and beautiful circles. With the orange peel, don’t rush to throw it away because you can use it for decoration.
Step 2: Make the cocktail
You put 30ml of Le Vista wine with 30ml of pure orange juice and lemon juice into the shaker, then use a dedicated tool to gently stir. Then you put small ice cubes into the jar and shake well.
In this step, you need to determine the appropriate shaking time and force. At this time, the ice part interacts with the alcohol mixture and collides with the body of the bottle and then melts. This helps the wine mix to be properly diluted with water as well as creating a perfect balance of flavor without being too harsh.
Step 3: Garnish and enjoy
After shaking, pour the mixture into a glass. For decoration, you can use fresh orange slices prepared on the side of the glass, or you can replace them with dried orange slices.
Leave the orange peel on the glass, now you will have a fresh orange cocktail that is both attractive in terms of look but also delicious and fresh in taste. This recipe can be applied with some other fruits.
Now it’s time to enjoy the finished orange cocktail!
