Seda de Naranja

Seda de Naranja sparkling cocktail with aged tequila, orange curaçao, orange bitters, and sparkling white wine

Seda de Naranja is Spanish for “orange silk” – a fitting name for this smooth, elegant sparkling citrus cocktail. Invented by the inimitable Phil Ward at Death & Co, it is surprisingly simple and easy to make.

Leave the Pierre Ferrand on the shelf for this one; the Seda de Naranja requires a rich, sweet curaçao with a jammy quality, like Grand Marnier. That sweetness is kept in check with a dry sparkling wine (Ward calls for Champagne specifically).

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
