Cocktail Recipe: Summer Breeze (Feat. Guava Syrup)
Summer will be here before you know it. Well, depending on where you live in the U.S., it might already feel like summer has descended upon you. As the heat waves roll in, why not take an afternoon to cool off with this tasty new cocktail recipe?
You’re sure to find our Summer Breeze cocktail recipe, which features Amoretti Premium Guava Syrup, to be incredibly refreshing no matter how high the thermometer goes!
Amoretti Summer Breeze
- 2 oz gin
- 1 oz limoncello
- 2-4 raspberries
- 1 pump Amoretti Premium Guava Syrup
- 2 oz tonic water
Add the gin, limoncello, and raspberries to your cocktail shaker. Next, muddle the raspberries. If you love raspberries, feel free to go beyond four per drink! Next, add that delicious tropical drink syrup, plenty of ice, and shake for 5-7 seconds. You want your ingredients to be thoroughly chilled. Pour and strain into a frosted Old Fashioned glass. Add 2 ounces or so of chilled tonic water. Enjoy!
We’ve featured only two limoncello recipes on the Amoretti Blog, our Blueberry Lemon Sparkler and the sweet-and-searing Little Italy Fire. However, neither of those cocktail recipes call for gin, which is quite possibly the best liquor for pairing with limoncello (especially in the summer!). Gin and limoncello, when enjoyed with fresh fruit and one of our wildest tropical drink syrups, makes for a terrific combination. You definitely won’t want to miss out on this drink recipe.
So, gin, limoncello, and raspberries you get. But what’s with guava syrup? Well, guava is easily one of the most underrated tropical drink syrups we carry. Many people describe guava as tasting somewhat sweet and sharp: a flavor that’s kind of like a combination between pear and strawberry.
Of course, if you’re eating real guava fruit, then the taste will depend on the ripeness. With our tropical guava drink syrup, you get the same balanced sweet/sour taste in every single beverage! Also, it’s worth mentioning that our guava syrup – like all Amoretti drink syrups – is sourced from nature and made from real ingredients. So, there’s a reason why our guava syrup tastes like the real deal; it is the real deal!
If you’re looking for a way to cool down this summer, pick up a bottle of Amoretti Premium Guava Syrup, and pour yourself a chilled Summer Breeze. We think you’ll be quite pleased with this little cocktail recipe!
