How to create this mojito recipe or any ombre cocktail drink?

I love to enjoy a gorgeous cocktail, add a beautiful ombre effect to it and I become weak in the knees. It’s all about how you layer the pours while building your cocktail. There are a couple of ways to approach this, here’s how I make my ombre mojito recipe. Remember, layer with the heaviest liquids first and ending with the lightest liquid as the top layer.

  • First, add in about half of the ice, followed by your mixed cocktail mixture to your glass.
  • Carefully top off the rest of the glass with more ice filled to the top, then slowly and gently pour the club soda or choice drink over the top of the ice cubes.
  • When you pour the club soda to where it directly hits the ice cubes, the ice will help prevent the cocktail mixture and club soda from mixing during the pour.
  • Alternatively, you can use the back of a spoon. Simply hover the spoon over at the top of your first layer of ingredients in the glass with the tip of the spoon against the side of the glass. Do not touch the first layer, then slowly pour the club soda over it.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce of rum
  • 1 ounce of red wine sangria
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 2-inch strip orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch ground cloves
  • Ice
  • Lime flavored sparkling water, club soda, Sprite or 7-UP
  • Fresh mint, to garnish
  • Lime wedge, to garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large glass, muddle together the rum, sangria, lime juice, mint, orange strip, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves.
  2. Fill glass with ice, strain in the rum mixture, top off slowly with the club soda.
  3. Garnish with a wedge of lime and fresh mint.

Notes

The best way to create an ombre effect is by pouring the club soda to where it doesn't directly hit the rum mixture. You can either slowly pour it into where it hits the ice or by pouring it over the back of a spoon.

For the sangria, any traditional red sangria that you love will work well.
