We are a little late posting this week. As usual we had a busy weekend and then Rhonda was a little under the weather, don’t worry though, Rhonda’s feeling better and ready to post about this week’s delicious, easy and light Fall cocktail — Orange You Glad It’s Carpano? (We got a little help from Blind Piglet #2 with the name ;))
Rhonda made this refreshing cocktail for a soup luncheon with her friends a couple of weeks ago. The Orange You Glad It’s Carpano pairs nicely with Italian food. Since Carpano Antica Vermouth is an aromatized wine product, it is a refreshing and light alternative to a red wine. It is perfect cocktail for a luncheon, because it doesn’t make you feel full or drowsy.
To make the Orange You Glad It’s Carpano, you only need three basic ingredients: Carpano Antica Vermouth, orange sparkling water, (we used Orange La Croix) and a fresh orange for garnish. The ombre effect of the caramel colored Carpano with the La Croix and the slice of orange garnish makes for a cocktail that looks like Fall.
Serve this cocktail up this weekend or as a pre-Thanksgiving cocktail. Your guests will be asking for more. Orange you glad?
