Refreshing summer drinks

SUMMER is here and the living is laidback and easy-does-it!  What’s better than lying back under blue skies with the ultimate summer refreshment in hand – the Angostura Rock Shandy!

Making it is this simple:

Build ½ a can of soda water and ½ a can of lemonade over ice, add 4 – 6 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters on top, stir, garnish with a lemon or lime wedge and serve.

If you’re looking for something more low-alcohol and alcohol-free, then try these options:

The Steelworks:

Fill a glass three-quarter way with ice and add soda water to the level of the ice. To this, add 30ml cola tonic and top up with ginger beer. Then add 4 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters, stir, garnish with a lemon wheel and serve.

Or the Lemon Lime Bitters:

In a glass, add 6 – 8 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters. Then add ice, 30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, 22ml lime cordial and 22ml sugar syrup. Top up with Sprite and garnish by squeezing the lemon wedge into the drink before adding it to the glass. En voilà, it’s ready to serve.
