Decided it was time to try something new with our Pisco Porton that would go well with the hot weather we’ve been having. We started with a basic pisco sour recipe from Epicurious.
Wanted to try a margarita tonight that would be a bit different. Jasvir suggested a mango margarita since we happen to have mango juice in the house. For mine I had to give it a bit of a kick of spice and flash of color.
Tonight’s cocktail for cocktail hour was a Habanero Lime ‘Rita. Just something fun to try as I had just gotten a new bottle of Monin Habanero Lime Syrup. I knew right away that this would be perfect with tequilla.
Jasvir saw this Midsummer Solstice Gin in the liquor store a bit ago and knew that is was going to be good. So, what do you make with gin to try it out the first time? A gin martini of course!
For something with a bit more spice than a typical whiskey smash, I decided to bring some ginger syrup into the mix. The fresh lemon brightness is refreshing and with the ginger, it adds just a bit of warmth. This is a nice twist for a slightly cooler spring day.
