Ingredients for the Mistletoe Kiss

Tequila and Aperol with a splash of blood orange soda and citrus may be one of the easiest and tastiest cocktail combinations. Find out exactly what I used to make the Mistletoe Kiss, and how easy it is for you too. 

  • Tequila: For this recipe, I used Don Juilo Blanco as the base. Since there are only four ingredients, it’s important to use quality spirits for the best results. 
  • Aperol: Add in a bit of Aperol for notes of grapefruit, orange, and vanilla. You can easily order liqueurs like Aperol from the Drizly app too.
  • Blood orange soda: Incorporate the Blood Orange Soda from Bundaberg for an exciting ingredient that adds fresh citrus flavors with a touch of effervescence. Find this fun ingredient through the Drizzly app also. 
  • Lemon wedge: Add in a squeeze of citrus will add a touch of brightness to this fresh cocktail. I prefer to use fresh lemon juice to really make this recipe shine.

Let’s Make the Mistletoe Kiss

Making the Mistletoe Kiss is so simple! With just a few steps, you’ll have a festive cocktail with a beautiful garnish within minutes.

First, start by filling a cocktail glass with ice. Add tequila, Aperol, blood orange soda and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir and garnish with a blood orange slice and rosemary wreath.

To make a rosemary wreath, use a toothpick to poke a hole through a cranberry. Place your rosemary sprigs so the base of the sprigs are on opposite sides. Twist the sprigs together. Place the tip of each sprig into each side of the cranberry, creating a wreath shape. Enjoy!
