True Twilight

True Twilight' is an exciting alcohol-free cocktail with the full flavour of Mokum Dusk True Blend, fresh lemon juice, honey syrup, fig jam and a touch of chilli. The recipe is a non-alcoholic variation on the famous 'Cosmopolitan', which is made from vodka, orange liqueur, lime juice and cranberry juice. We have replaced the cranberry juice with fig jam for a full, deep flavour. And instead of orange liqueur, we use a mild honey syrup. The red pepper accentuates the spicy character of Mokum Dusk True Blend and gives this cocktail a deliciously complex taste sensation.

You can make honey syrup quite easily yourself. Always use the following proportions:
2 parts honey to 1 part water. Put the honey and hot water in a small bowl. Stir well until you get a nice smooth syrup. Leave the honey syrup to cool. You can keep the rest in a closed bottle in a cool and dark place.


In principle, it does not matter in what order you mix the ingredients, as long as all the ingredients are added in the right proportions.


Pay attention to your technique when shaking: Always shake lengthwise (top to bottom) for best results.
