A few months ago, my husband and I went to a cute little Spanish tapas restaurant and, by pure chance, came across a new kind of liquor. The Maruccia Elixir is a delicious liquor made by a German who has his own vineyard on the island of Mallorca and now cultivates and produces his own wines and liquors. For obvious reasons (my husband is Spanish and I am German), the man’s story resonated with us and we took a bottle of his Maruccia Elixir home with us.
The liquor has a very smooth and fruity taste, especially of oranges. You can drink it pure, but our favorite cocktail by far is the one I share below.
(Unpaid for and unsolicited advertisement because of brand mention.)
- 40 ml of Maruccia Elxir
- 200 ml of tonic water
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (adjust to your own liking)
- ice cubes
This is a great summer drink when you want to ring in a sunny weekend and treat yourself!
