Low-Alcohol Drinks Are The Ultimate Refreshment For Summer

Those warm summer days are back and now’s the perfect time to sit back, relax and let the bitters do the talking… with the ultimate summer refreshment in hand – the Angostura Rock Shandy!

This perfect serve has rocked our worlds for as long as we can remember. Uniquely South African, it’s the first choice in restaurants, country clubs and cocktail bars, and an ambassador for home entertaining. Making it is this simple:

Build ½ a can of soda water and ½ a can of lemonade over ice, add 4 – 6 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters on top, stir, garnish with a lemon or lime wedge and serve.

Is the Angostura Rock Shandy not for you? There are now more low-alcohol and alcohol-free drink options than ever before.

Try the Steelworks:

Fill a glass three-quarter way with ice and add soda water to the level of the ice. To this, add 30ml cola tonic and top up with ginger beer. Then add 4 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters, stir, garnish with a lemon wheel and serve.

Or try another low alcohol by volume favourite – the Lemon Lime Bitters:

In a glass, add 6 – 8 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters. Then add ice, 30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, 22ml lime cordial and 22ml sugar syrup. Top up with Sprite and garnish by squeezing the lemon wedge into the drink before adding it to the glass. En voilà, it’s ready to serve.
