Servings: 1
Prep time: 25 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

2 (2-liter) bottles of Irn-Bru
⅞ ounce|25 ml tequila, preferably Ocho 8
1 ¼ ounces|35 ml Irn-Bru reduction
⅕ ounce|5 ml fresh lemon juice
⅞ ounce|25 ml soda water
3 ½ ounces|100 ml Prosecco
black olive, to garnish
grapefruit slice, to garnish

Directions

  1. Make the Irn-Bru reduction: Get a 2-litre bottle of Irn-Bru and pour into a pan over medium-high. Reduce the Irn-Bru by two thirds (yields 23 ounce|650 ml) and let cool. You can use just the Irn-Bru straight from the can, I would suggest replacing the soda water in the recipe with twice as much Irn-Bru.
  2. In a wine glass filled with ice, pour the tequila, Irn-Bru reduction, lemon juice, soda water, and Prosecco. Add the black olive and grapefruit slice to garnish.
