The “We could do that.…” cocktail has been created in celebration of the first 60 years of Ms. Esperanza Uves of Nimes, France. It is based on the principles of Esperanza’s approach to life, uncomplicated and direct. Should you here the words "We could do that....." from Esperanza, best accept that idea is off the table!

The cocktail has various options: Limoncello replaced by Limoncino, “We could do that…”(or NOT), Grand Marnier replaced by Cointreau, “We could do that…” (or NOT), refrigerated juices not fresh,“We could do that…” (or NOT), Champagne replaced by Cava (definitely NOT!)

To be totally authentic, the first sip should be taken in celebration of a day’s major achievement, say cutting the lawns.

Be warned! Following consumption of a “We could do that…” you could find you are working in a land distant from home, without realising fully how it happened and yet inexplicably believing it was all your own idea. Simple, clean and efficient!

FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the orange liqueur in 'We could do that.…' with something non-alcoholic?

Yes, for a non-alcoholic version of orange liqueur, you can use an orange flavored syrup or concentrated orange juice. Adjust the sweetness accordingly, as these substitutes may be sweeter or less intense in flavor compared to the alcoholic counterpart.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnish works well with 'We could do that.…' cocktail?

A twist of orange or lemon peel works wonderfully as a garnish for 'We could do that.…' The citrusy aroma complements the orange and lemon liqueurs, and the visual appeal enhances the overall drinking experience.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

Is there a specific type of champagne glass recommended for 'We could do that.…'?

While the cocktail specifies a champagne glass, opting for a flute can enhance the experience by preserving the carbonation and aroma of the champagne or prosecco topping. However, a coupé glass could also be a stylish alternative, offering a more vintage appeal.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in 'We could do that.…' compare to a standard glass of champagne?

The alcohol content of 'We could do that.…' is listed at 7%, which is slightly lower than a standard glass of champagne or prosecco, which usually ranges around 12% alcohol by volume. This makes it a lighter, more sessionable option for those looking to enjoy a cocktail with a lower alcohol content.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is it important to shake and not stir the 'We could do that.…' cocktail?

Shaking the cocktail ingredients, except for the champagne or prosecco, ensures that the citrus juices, liqueurs, and gomme syrup are thoroughly mixed and chilled. This method also introduces a slight dilution and aeration, which results in a smoother and more refreshing drink. The champagne or prosecco is then topped up to preserve its effervescence, offering a lively texture to the drink.
