Charleston Cocktail

on November 12, 2010

I am going to be in Charleston, SC for a few days and thought I’d look into a drink associated with the city. I found the Charleston Cocktail. It uses Mandarin Napoleon Orange Liqueur. I had never heard of this so I did some research. It is a Belgian orange liqueur made from cognac and flavored with essential oils that are extracted from fresh Sicilian tangerines. If you can’t find the Mandarin Napoleon Orange Liqueur you can substitute Grand Marnier or Cointreau for it. This cocktail is a great drink for sipping while sitting on the porch on a nice warm day. I am looking forward to trying it while there or making it on my own when I return! Cheers!


3.5 ounces Mandarin Napoleon Orange Liqueur

3.5 ounces cherry brandy

6 ounces lemonade


Pour the Mandarin Napoleon and cherry brandy into a Collins glass half-filled with ice cubes. Top with lemonade, to taste, and serve.

Makes 2 drinks
