Here’s a play on a tropical fizz:
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- 2 oz sparkling water
- 1 oz fresh orange juice
- 1 oz elderflower syrup
- A pinch of ground cinnamon
- Ice cubes
Fill a shaker with ice. Add the pineapple juice, orange juice, elderflower syrup, and cinnamon to the shaker. Shake well to mix. Strain the mixture into a highball glass filled with ice and top with your sparkling water. Stir gently and serve.
Garnish with a sprig of mint or slice of orange, if you’d like.
To change it up a bit, try different flavors of sparkling water. For example, substitute Passionfruit LaCroix or Pineapple Bubly.
The pineapple juice provides a sweet, tropical flavor, the sparkling water adds a light effervescence, the orange juice provides a bright and tangy flavor, and the elderflower syrup contributes a floral sweetness. The cinnamon provides a warming, spicy sensation that adds depth and complexity to the drink. Give it a try!
