Brimming full with colors
A concoction of juices and citrus
Doused with love and
A splashing of booze


* Chapman is a famous cocktail in Nigeria, it is often non alcoholic but you can add some alcohol if you like…the origin is not exactly known but the recipe is very much the same. It is often enjoyed with a club sandwich, and typically served in beer mugs* This is a common recipe for Chapman and one I have adopted myself…I know some friends add Lemon rinds toΒ their recipe*


Ice cubes
1/2 liter of Fanta
1/2 liter of Sprite
1/4 cup of Black currant cordial or Ribena
A dash of Angostura bitters
Juice of Half Lemon, Lime and Orange
Cucumber slices
Orange slices
Lemon and Lime slices
A splash or more (if you prefer) of Campari


Add icubes into a pitcher
Pour in the blackcurrant cordial
Add Spirte and Fanta at the same time
Stir and then add a dash of angostura bitters
Taste if necessary and add more bitters as needed
Pour in freshly sqeezed citrus juices
Add slices of cucumber and then citrus
Mix in the campari if using and stir all together
Allow to cool in the refrigerator
Β  Chapman is best served chilled in beer mugs

  1. Looks delicious boomie — maybe a healing tonic? Especially since β€˜doused with love’ ~ and a little booze has to be a good thing too!! πŸ™‚

    • I know the bitters have some medicinal thingy but don’t quote me on that lol. But love has all the healing for sure and maybe a splash of booze :). Thanks Robyn, how are you feeling this morning?

    • Ah yea sweet. it really is, i made it for a friend’s baby shower years ago and it was such a hit. I had to stop when it was all everyone wanted and i was mixing other drinks lol. Let me know what you think whenever you try it πŸ™‚

  2. Looks wonderful and in this heat in Bangladesh VERY refreshing. However, I think I would struggle to find most of the ingredients (especially any alcohol to add to it!) so please crate me over a month’s supply will you?! πŸ™‚
