To us, a good summer cocktail always has to tick a few things off our checklist.
It has to be easy to make, their ingredients need to be easy to find and most important of all: they need to be delicious.
We also want a fresh taste and anything citrus-related usually does the job well. That’s why a “Ginger 43” hits all the right buttons, making it an EBS favorite in all of our summer destinations.
Your Ginger 43 Needs Licor 43
Licor 43 is becoming more and more popular all over the world, and it’s no doubt down to the fact that it’s incredibly versatile.
It’s considered a household item anywhere in Southern Spain and it’s becoming a must-have for a lot of bars across the globe.
The original recipe is a well-kept secret amongst Zamora family members who own the brand, since its creation in 1924. Prepare yourself for more citrus, Mediterranean herbs, vegetable essences and several aromatic spices.
It’s not just for summer cocktails, but it sure does make them delicious.
