It’s Official! Malta Has A New National Cocktail

Article Featured Image

Malta has a new national cocktail and it’s been dubbed the Maltese Falcon. The cocktail was chosen last week after a competition organised by the Malta Bartenders Guild. 

As you may have predicted, the cocktail includes Kinnie, Malta’s bitter orange soft-drink – but there’s more to it than that. Here’s the full recipe for you to try at home:

5cl Vodka

3cl Bajtra Liqueur (a local liqueur made from prickly pears)

3cl Prickly Pear Syrup

2cl Fresh Orange Juice

Top up with Kinnie

The cocktail should be served in a Libbey Hobstar old-fashioned glass and garnished with caramelised orange and fresh mint leaves.

James Aquilina was the bartender who came up with cocktail, fending off competition from 18 other entrants.
