How To Make A Tropical Cocktail

Whether you are on a beach in Hawaii or relaxing in your back garden, there’s never a wrong time or place to enjoy yourself a Tropical Cocktail.

The Sparkling Wine

Citra was founded in 1973 and has 6,000 hectares of vineyards, that grow four different Sparkling Wines, including the one I’ve chosen to include in this Tropical Cocktail.

Citra Vini Rina Passerina Brut Tasting Notes – “Citrus aromas. Soft citrus with Apricot and minerals on the palate.”

A Highly Commended winner in the Zesty & Zingy Category in The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2019.

If you want to give this Sparkling Wine a try you can buy a bottle on their website for only €6,90.

Tropical Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Watermelon, pineapple with a hint of mango.”

Taste – “You get a tingling tropical fruit sensation initially, then smoothie characters with a nice kick of fizzy citrus at the end.”

This is the kind of Cocktail you can easily keep ordering and before you know it, end up feeling a little tipsy.

A delicious Cocktail that I would definitely recommend to any tropical fruit lover.
