A beautiful ombre visual not unlike a summer sunset, it might just be love at first sight and sip with this refreshing cocktail recipe from Vancouver's Nuba.

If you haven't had Arak before, know that this Middle Eastern spirit has an intense anise flavour and is best used sparingly in cocktails as to not overpower. In Nuba's Beruit Sunset, it is balanced out by triple sec, pomegranate syrup and citrus.

A Tequila Sunrise has got nothing on this drink!
