This drink sounds royal just from its name, and many may be surprised to learn that it is made from very humble ingredients. The famous Monaco cocktail has a royal story behind it as well. On the day of the Royal Wedding between His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Monaco II and Charlene Wittstock, an Olympic swimmer from South Africa, the royal couple was also toasted to with this delicious fruity drink.

The delectable nature and heady buzz of this cocktail are just too irresistible for most. It is the ideal drink to also enhance the chocolate nuances of a liqueur if it has any at all. It is a very easy-going cocktail, and is far closer to the sweeter side in taste as compared to the bitter or savoury ends. The Monaco cocktail, as the name implies, has a far more of a classy persona, as compared to an adventurous one. It is such a sweet nectar, and so light on the senses, that it can be enjoyed generously as well, which is good news because it is extremely delicious and addictive.

As most drinks are, the cocktail Monaco is also subjected to a great number of variations in the recipe, with some substituting even the main spirit, while others may be adding different flavours. In some areas it can also sometimes be a brand-specific recipe. Either way, most who have tried the Monaco cocktail would agree that it is quite an aphrodisiac and is good enough on its own to get just about anybody in the mood.

Here is a recipe for the magnificent Monaco cocktail.


  • 120 ml amber beer
  • 60 ml lemon-lime flavoured carbonated beverage
  • ¼ teaspoon grenadine syrup


  1. Pour the beer and soda into a highball glass
  2. Slowly add the grenadine syrup from above
  3. Sir briskly and serve immediately


  • Highball glass
  • Stirrer
