Bubbles Fall Flat this Festive Season

Mr Neo Luxe Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur Christmas Gift GuideThe festive season officially kicks off on the first of December and chances are the Christmas party invitations have started rolling in, along with the celebratory BBQ’s or dinners at your friend’s places. 

This season swap the dull bottle of wine or bubbles with something a little more exciting and refreshing. Introducing Solerno the world’s first Blood Orange Liqueur. This unique drink is the brainchild of Lesley Gracie, Master Distiller of Hendrick’s Gin, and blends the zesty fragrant essential oils of Sicily’s Blood Oranges and marries them together with lemon and orange to create a bright and refined spirit.

On the nose this vibrant liqueur bursts with refreshing blood orange, orange blossom and a hint of zesty lemon. This refreshing drink pairs perfectly with a cheese plate and Italian delights such as prosciutto. Whether you choose to drink Solerno on ice, create the signature cocktail the Solerno Serata, or incorporate it into one of your favourite cocktails, this bitter-sweet liqueur is destined to be a hit this summer with those who enjoy the regular cocktail or festive treat.

Here are a few of my favourite Solero Cocktails for the festive season:
