12 Tonics to Christmas: Spanish Sunset

We are halfway through the #12TonicsToChristmas series and feeling nostalgic….

Inspired by my time spent in Barcelona, on balmy summer evenings strolling the bustling streets and dropping by a street cafe for a refreshing drink, as you watch the late sunset between the historic buildings.

It was only obvious to add this orange-and-rum creation to my #12TonicsToChristmas list.  Sit back and sip this drink as you think about what you’ve survived in 2018.



  • 10ml Lime Juice
  • 50ml Bacardi Carta Negra Rum
  • 3 dashes Angustura Bitters
  • Sprig of mint
  • Fentimans Mandarin & Seville Orange Jigger


  • Ensure you have all your equipment and ingredients ready.
  • Fill a highball glass with ice, squeeze in the fresh lime juice from 1 lime and sprig of mint.  Add he Bacardi Carta Negra (dark) rum and top with chilled Fentimans Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger and top with a generous (to taste) dashes of bitters.
  • Serve with fresh lime and dried orange slice as decoration.
