If you want the option without alcohol, you can substitute the rum for another drink such as tea or lemonade.

Selected drinks may vary, since there are more sophisticated drinks (por ejemplo, Brandy Emilio Hidalgo) or cheaper (Brandy Sorel). In any case, a citrus mix is added to the alcoholic drink (lemon juice, cherry juice, sugar, a slice of orange and sugar).

DAIQUIRI: It could not be missing among our seasonal cocktails. Created in Cuba, this cocktail It is based on white rum, so typical of the islands. The ingredients we need are white rum (My recommendation is that you turn to Rum Santiago de Cuba Carta Blanca) and lime juice. To this mixture we will add sugar and a lot of crushed ice.
TEQUILA SUNRISE: For tequila lovers, Tequila Sunrise is the perfect option. It is not known very well where this curious mixture arose, but it was in the US. It is a cocktail that mixes tequila and orange juice. To these two ingredients add a little grenadine juice and some orange slices. To end, we add ice and some decorative icing. The result is delicious!
APEROL SPRITZ: Over time the spritz has become fashionable in Europe, And no wonder. This drink, very common in the Austrian area, Suiza and Italy, It is the most popular cocktail of our European neighbors. To prepare it we need Aperol and a good wine. In countries like Italy they usually turn to Prosecco, but my experience tells me that sparkling wines from our area they are perfect (Agustí Torelló, Alta Alella, etc.). To these is added a little soda, ice and a slice of orange.
