Some things are classic for a reason in a bar and Bars in Limassol are no different. Don’t get us wrong, we love an inventive, over-the-top cocktail as much as you. Timeless flavours of cocktails like the Margarita, the Hugo, and the Aperol Spritz are the cocktail version of comfort food. We can’t imagine a world without them.
While the choice of cocktails is – of course – down to personal preference. But there are some classic cocktails that have stood the test of time. With no further ado, let’s jump right into the top 5 Bar Du Soleil classic cocktails. This guide will give you an idea of what to expect in Limassol Bars and most importantly in our bar!
Walk through the streets of Florence, and stroll around Verona’s little trails. Visit the timeless city of Rome, and get to see Milano’s fashion shows, and all these with just a sip of a drink.
What drink could do such a trick you ask? The Aperol Spritz of course!
If you ever had the pleasure of visiting literally any city in Italy, you have definitely noticed that everyone enjoys a good Aperol Spritz. The after-work spritz is a long-established Italian tradition and its bittersweet flavour, and aromatic botanicals. With easygoing alcohol content made it the perfect choice for pre-dinner sipping.
You might not be in Italy, but with a good cocktail in hand, you can channel the country’s long-standing tradition of aperitivo hour.
When life gives you lemons, trade them for mint leaves and make a mojito!
This Cuban cocktail is a blend of a few simple ingredients, but the resulting drink is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, not to mention refreshing!
The recipe for this Cuban cocktail includes rum, lime, mint, and sugar. The mixture is topped off with a little club soda to create a thirst-quenching libation. It requires a bit more labour than many mixed drinks. It involves first muddling fresh mint, lime, and sugar together to release the flavours.
But it’s well worth it for a refreshing, fizzy, and mildly sweet rum cocktail that remains one of the most popular to this day, in every bar in Limassol.
Made popular in the 90s thanks to the hit TV show Sex and the City. This deliciously sweet Cosmopolitan definitely deserves its place on our top 5 Bar Du Soleil Classics!
Blending vodka, Cointreau, and cranberry juice and traditionally served in a martini glass. The Cosmo is the cocktail of choice for many glamorous individuals and certainly, celebrities.
The Cosmo was designed to be aesthetically pleasing to appeal to more women. It tastes just as beautiful as it looks! This modern, classic cocktail is incredibly popular around the world. It is also easily adjusted by adding a splash of champagne to create a more glitzy element.
As the most ordered cocktail in the world, the classic Margarita has been one of the most popular cocktails for years and still remains on top. Margaritas usually go hand in hand with Mexican food, yet the cocktail has an unclear origin story.
Regardless of the multiple claims of origin, the Margarita caught on and is commonly one of the most popular cocktails in the world. While there are many variations, the traditional recipe consists of tequila, Triple Sec, and lime juice. Additionally, it is typically served with a salt rim to produce the perfect balance of sweet, sour, and salty.
Along with our Tacos, it is easily one of the best combos of food & drinks that you can find in Limassol.
No cocktail list would be complete without mentioning the Hugo cocktail.
If you’re looking for something refreshing to sip during the summer months, then Hugo is the cocktail you’ve been looking for. With hints of floral and citrus, this bubbly Italian cocktail is the kind of cocktail you want to sip slowly. But the drink you are also ready to drink another one as soon as the first is finished.
The Hugo Cocktail is a relatively new drink, said to be invented in 2005 by Roland Gruber in Northern Italy, as an alternative to the Aperol spritz. Similar to the drink that inspired it, the Hugo Cocktail is a spritz cocktail made with Prosecco, elderberry syrup or liqueur, and sparkling water.
It’s light and refreshing with a floral taste. Once you try it, you’ll understand why this drink quickly became a favourite throughout Europe, and in Limassol Bars for the summer months!
