OMG!! I love this cocktail..

Do you remember spelling tests?.. I still get bad dreams about my spelling tests - In my dream - I am trying real hard to spell the word - convinient... completely stressed out thinking whether it has an 'e' or an 'i' after 'v'...

Thank god for spell check!! especially the in-built spell check in Internet browsers.. I think Ram Gopal Verma aptly said on his blog - something like - 'In this era of sms, mms and tweets people who worry about spellings are dinosaurs!'

Although it takes me a while to read the sms language.. I think I understand the spirit..
To the point, short words that accurately convey someone's sentiments..

That's why I decided to name this cocktail - OMG!! - that's the reaction people have after the first sip..

Time: 30 minutes
  • Freshly squeezed juice of 3 Naval Oranges - (aka Mosambi in India)
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup Limoncello
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Kokam concentrate - If you don't have kokam try cranberry juice that should taste equally good

Mix the ingredients in a shaker and serve on the rocks with rock salt on the rim of the glass.
Perfect drink for a hot summer evening.. if you have grilled Salmon and the fruity spinach salad to go with it - even better!
