Cocktail: Three-Citrus Splash

This cocktail makes for a refreshing drink. This makes use of three citruses—lemon, lime, and dalandan. Dalandan or the Philippine orange is a citrus that is widely available in the country. This recipe also requires a tall glass. One is enough to last you a night or a whole afternoon. After all, every hour is happy hour, right?

Ingredients

1 part gin (I used Ginebra)
1 part Manille Liqueur de Dalandan (if not available, use orange liqueur)
3 parts Waitrose Cloudy Lemonade soda
1 part lemon-lime soda (Sprite)
Juice of ½ a lime

Procedure

1. Fill a tall glass with ice.
2. Use a shot glass to measure the liquids. Pour in gin, dalandan liqueur, lemonade soda, and lemon-lime soda.
3. Cut a lime in half, squeeze juice into the glass. Using a bar spoon (or an ordinary spoon) stir mixture well.
4. Using the other half, slice lime for garnish. You can put the slices into the cocktail or let a slice straddle on the lip of the glass. Enjoy!
