43 Hours of Passion in Minorca - And 3 of my Favorite Cocktail Recipes with Licor43
Sponsored post - Made in Collaboration with Licor43
As some of you may know I was in Minorca last weekend with Licor43, a passionate Spanish licor brand, to experience 43 hours of "Pura Pasion!" - get it? ;)
How we spent our 43 hours in Minorca
we were lucky enough to be there during the famous Sant Joan Festival which is a yearly event that everyone in Spain is dying to go to! The festival lasts for a week and is all about drinking and partying while you watch the big horse parade. Even though we only were participating one of the days and it was so unique to experience a festival where the old traditions were mixed modern days traditions. But since we were traveling with a licor company we sure as heck wasn't lacking on the alcohol part haha! Because it was so hot we mostly drank the signature cocktail Ginger 43 which I will give you the recipe to further down.
The day after we went north to the Island to experience the more "chill" part of the Island. We went on a relaxing boat trip (thank God I didn't drink too much the day before haha!) before we headed to the most amazing beach club, Isabella Menorca, to participate in a cocktail course and see the sunset. I think we tasted 6-7 different cocktails made with Licor 43 and the newest edition to the brand: Licor 43 Orochata. But first let me tell you a bit a bout the licor, or more specifically how it tastes, because as a person who doesn't like the taste of really strong alcohol Licor 43 is perfect!
How Does Licor 43 taste?
The traditional Licor43 is sweet and warm - kinda like honey. It doesn't have the bitter taste as most liqueurs have, which makes it easy to drink on "the rocks". The new edition, Licor43 Orochata, is sweet and has a milky texture but infused with Mediterranean spices like cinnamon, lemon and tiger nut. This makes it a bit more heavy and more something you will enjoy together with a dessert (in my opinion). Because of the cinnamon it really reminded me of christmas so I can easily see myself serve it as a holiday cocktail "on the rocks" at a Christmas party.
