Tuaca cocktails get international recognition


Tuaca, an Italian vanilla liqueur with citrus essences, has been made from the same recipe since 1938, and is still to this day created by Tuoni and Canepa Distillery in Livorno, Tuscany.

Because its flavour profile is hitting all the right notes for today’s cocktail drinkers, it is gaining listings in style bars in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

It is created from oak aged Italian brandy infused with sugar, natural citrus fruit and sweet aromatics, including vanilla. The mix gives the liqueur complexity, making it ideal for cocktails and long drinks, or as a chilled shot to be sipped and savoured.

At its simplest, it makes a refreshing Tuscan Mule: into a highball glass filled with cubed ice, squeeze three wedges of fresh lime juice, add 50ml of Tuaca liqueur and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a lime wedge. More Tuaca cocktails below.
