Here's some inspiration for your #localmix cocktail.

It's that time again to feast your eyes on an African-inspired cocktail to help you with your entry for the DStv #localmix competition.

If a DStv Homegrown show has inspired your cocktail idea but you need that extra something to make it a winner, take some tips from the Chapman Drink recipe from Nigeria. 

To make this cocktail you'll need: 
Ice cubes
3-4 tablespoons of blackcurrant/cassis cordial/syrup/squash
350ml Sprite or 7 up, preferably cold
350ml Fanta, preferably cold
1/8th of a teaspoon of Angostura bitters
Squeeze of Lemon
Squeeze of Lime
Squeeze of Orange

To mix:

Add ice cubes to glasses.

Add dashes of grenadine and angostura bitters to your taste.

Squeeze an orange and lemon in each glass, then share the Fanta and Sprite between the four glasses.

Finally top your glasses with cucumber, lemon and orange slices for garnish.

Add blackcurrant if you’d like.

See, it's not that hard. 
 
Now that you have some inspiration, enter your #localmix cocktail into the competition before Friday, 31 July.
