Maltese Slipper

Maltese Slipper


This sharp, punchy, fruit flavoured cocktail is a real heavy hitter! If you like cocktails at the sour end of the spectrum you’ll love this one, don’t let the melon liqueur fool you. It looks pretty too!

If you plan on making this at your party it does involve a little advance prep work as you’ll need to make a sour mix which is really easy to do. Your guests will thank you for it, and you’ll feel like a cocktail pro!
