Instructions

The Spaanse Zonsondergang is a cocktail that captures the essence of a picturesque Spanish sunset with its vibrant layers of color and a blend of flavors that dance on the palate like a flamenco dancer's feet. The drink combines the velvety smoothness of Spanish red wine with the crisp effervescence of citrus soda and the exotic touch of brandy and orange liqueur. Ingredients: - 2 oz Spanish red wine (Tempranillo or Garnacha) - 1 oz brandy - 1/2 oz orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Triple Sec) - 2 oz freshly squeezed orange juice - 1 oz lemon-lime soda or club soda - 1/2 oz grenadine syrup - Orange slice for garnish - Maraschino cherry for garnish - Ice cubes Instructions: 1. Fill a tall glass, preferably a highball glass, with ice cubes. 2. Pour the orange liqueur and brandy over the ice. 3. Add the freshly squeezed orange juice to the mix. 4. Slowly pour in the Spanish red wine, allowing it to gently mix and create a gradient effect. 5. Gently top with the lemon-lime soda or club soda to add fizz. 6. Carefully add the grenadine, which will sink and settle at the bottom, creating a sunset-like color gradation. 7. Garnish with a fresh slice of orange and a maraschino cherry on a skewer. 8. Serve immediately to ensure the drink maintains its beautiful layers before the colors blend. Encourage your guests to gently stir the cocktail before sipping to enjoy the full array of Spanish-inspired flavors. The Spaanse Zonsondergang is not only a treat for the taste buds but also a visual pleasure, perfect for a summer evening or any festive occasion.
