What a simple cocktail, this one is. Yet, we are all witnesses to the fact that it is often the simplest cocktails, made of the most humble ingredients, which go far and wide in terms of popularity. The Cokello is a living testament to this fact as well.
It is, as the name lets on, simply a delectable mix of Coca Cola soft drink and Limoncello lemon flavoured liqueur. Add to those two classic ingredients a little bit of light Rum if desired, and you’re all set to start the party. This modest cocktail calls for no fancy liqueur or elaborate garnish, not even a specific glass, yet it has no need for frills when it delivers on the thrills.
This drink is extremely easy to whip up at home, which adds to its popularity factor. Whether you’re at home alone, or with friends, or at the bar, with or without company, rest assured that this cocktail is always a good idea. Its simple and easy recipe also makes it perfect to mix up in large batches for company. The Cokello has quite an adventurous party oriented nature, so it is best for Barbeques, game night, or during a game of cards with the lads. It is more potent than it lets on, so there is a need for some restraint, unless you want to get rowdier and wilder, in which case a few glasses of this drink will definitely get you there.
