My Clementine

This fizzy, zesty cocktail gets its sweetness from fresh clementine juice and agave nectar. Perfect for a starter or breakfast drink using our Darling Clementines®!

Grilled Citrus Margaritas

Grilling citrus caramelizes the natural sugars and brings out a deep, smoky flavor. You can use this trick for any drink you’re making, but try it out with Darling Lemons® to make this Grilled Citrus Margarita unlike any you’ve had before.


Extra-Orange Old Fashioned

We love anything with “extra orange,” especially an old fashioned. It starts with an oleo saccharum, latin for “oil-sugar” which infuses citrus peels in the citrus juice, water and sugar to bring out the essential oils in the fruit and add a depth of flavor. Add rye, bitters, ice and serve with Darling Orange® and Darling Lemon® peels.


Cayo Romano Cocktail

Not your typical cocktail, this spiced drink is full of ginger, nutmeg, two types of rum, and citrus juices. Juice a Darling Orange® and get shakin’!
