How to make refreshing Licor 43 balón cocktail?
So how do we make this cocktail? It is ultra easy to make and only requires 3 ingredients. Take a slice of lemon and orange and squeeze juice in a glass. Then fill the glass and add ice cubes to the rim. Next step you need about 35 ml of Licor 43.
This licor is really quite strong and just like with Tinto de Verano it needs a little pop in your glass.That is why I fill the remainder of the glass with about 80 to 90 ml of sparkling water.
I use San Pellegrino as it has a nice soft taste even if it is just sparkling water but you can add any type of sparkling water. For decoration add slices of lemon and slices of orange to the glass.
That is it! When you first add the Licor 43 to the glass and put the sparkling water on top of it you will have like a sunrise in you glass.
