This appetizing mocktail is named for the Sicilian Tarocco orange, whose flavours and crimson colour is reflected in the drink. Perfect to serve as an apéritif, it combines Lyre’s Italian Orange and Apéritif Rosso, non-alcoholic alternatives to Aperitif and Vermouth Rosso respectively. The mocktail has slightly bitter blood orange notes which are balanced out by the smoothness of the vanilla and the crisp, dry finish of the premium tonic water. Refreshing and delicious, simply garnish with a blood orange wheel and a sprig of mint. Enjoy!
