What would winter be without the fresh, tangy, perfumed citrus fruits? I can’t even imagine! And tangerines are one of winter’s greatest culinary gifts. Indeed, the delectable fruits are exceptionally sweet and aromatic.
And it’s not only their juice that’s incredibly fragrant. The zest of tangerines is filled with tiny oil glands that are loaded with the pure essence of the fruit. It’s this zesty flavor that I really wanted to capture in this refreshing, non-alcoholic drink… and muddling the unpeeled fruit does the job marvelously. Additionally, the tangerines are muddled with fresh rosemary to make a thirst-quenching, highly sippable and totally delicious concoction.
You can make this delightful drink with satsumas, honey tangerines, Minneola tangelos, clementines, Page mandarins or any other sweet tangerines or mandarins you can lay your hands on!
