I purchased all 3 flavors of the Lorina Prestige Sparkling Sodas to make 3 unique cocktail recipes. I really enjoyed all 3 flavors and it was hard to decide which one I liked the best.
The first cocktail recipe I made was with the Lorina Lemonade flavor.
- 1 part Triple Sec
- 3 parts Lemon Vodka
- Lorina Sparkling Soda
- Use a cocktail shaker with ice, add the Triple Sec and Lemon Vodka. Fill the cocktail shaker with Lemonade Sparkling Soda. Shake well. Garnish drink glass with yellow sugar and lemon slice. Pour drink into glass and serve.
The next flavor I used from Lorina Sparkling Sodas was the Blood Orange flavor.
1 part Coconut Rum
1 part Blood Orange Liqueur
4 parts Lorina Blood Orange Sparkling Soda
Mix the above ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Garnish the cocktail glass with orange sugar and an orange slice. Pour into glass serve with ice.
The last recipe I made is a party recipe and I used the Pink Lemonade flavor from Lorina.
Mixed Berry Limoncello Sangria
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 quart fresh strawberries (sliced)
1 cup fresh blackberries
1 lemon, thinly sliced
3/4 cup Lorina Pink Lemonade Sparkling Soda
1/2 cup Limoncello (lemon flavor liqueur)
2 750 millilitre bottle of sparkling wine, chilled
In a large pitcher add fruit, pink lemonade soda and limoncello. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours to blend flavors. Just before serving, add the sparkling wine. Serve in glass over ice.
