An Amaro di Angostura bitters Calypso cocktail with lime


Hey! So how’s the New Year treating you so far?  Now I know a lot of people are doing dry January but we couldn’t help but want to share another great cocktail from Drake and Morgan.  This time it’s their Calypso cocktail which is a refreshing combination Amara di Angostura (a bitters with liquorice / cinnamon and dark chocolate tones) and fresh lime juice!

  • 50ml Amaro di Angostura
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 20ml simple syrup
  • 1 egg white

And to make it all you need to do is:

  • Shake the ingredients in a cocktail shaker
  • Then shake again but this time with plenty of cubed ice to chill the cocktail
  • Strain into a coup glass and serve with dried lavender sprinkles

If all this sounds like too much effort, you can always go and sample the cocktail at any of the Drake and Morgan bars!

Until next time,
