The Sunset Cocktail

So, hubby is away for a conference. A FOUR-day conference. I guess it comes with him being the boss, he needs to go away once in a while. 
The little man and I  have been having some fun though. I had to take some time off work since the hubby is away, so I am enjoying our alone time together. 
This is our last night without hubby and I thought I would make myself something fun after the little man goes to sleep, so that I don’t feel too lonely. Well, now as I am typing this post, I am on my third one. This should tell you how good this is!


4 oz white wine (Muscato)
2 oz Orange Mango soda (I love ICE soda)
1 oz Orange juice
.5 oz Grenadine
Thin slices of orange

1. Slice the orange very thinly, just a few slices.

2. Combine wine and soda in a glass.
3. Here is the trick to sink a liquid in your cocktail:
You can sink a liquid if its heavier that the liquid you adding it to (think black and tan). Here the wine and soda are lighter than OJ and Grenadine.
Once you mixed your wine and soda, take a soup spoon and place it on the edge of the glass, lightly aim it towards the top edge of the wine mixture.

Slowly pour the OJ to sink it. Then slowly pour the Grenadine to sink it.
4. All your orange slice. Serve chilled.
