This is an easy drinking cocktail, fairly easy to mix, once you know how. What you need for making this cocktail is as follows:

1 x shot of Vodka

1 x shot of Galliano

Dash of Grenadine

Orange Juice

Ice Cubes

Cocktail Shaker

Glass (Gib Beverage type), or any ‘chunky’ glass from your cupboard.

Orange (fruit) cut as a wheel (for decoration)

2 x drinking straws.

Firstly,  pour the single shot of both Vodka and Galliano in the bottom of the cocktail shaker, then add (about a third of the way up the cocktail shaker), the orange juices. Shake the cocktail shaker ove r your shoulder about 10-15 times, )in order for the drink to mix properly). Then pour into the glass, with roughly 5 x ice cubes, then garnish with the orange ‘wheel’. Finally add the dash of Grenadine, that gives it that lovely ‘streaky’ colour.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!
