Home Cooking: Seasonal Cocktails
1. DETOX COCKTAIL
A fresh, citrusy drink with a kick. Detox is a cocktail that creates a healthy feeling from ginger and earl grey flavors.
1.5 cl Homemade Earl Grey Syrup
3 cl Lemon juice
1.5 cl Ginger liquor
Garnish: Shiso Leaf or any garnish of your choice
2. LIP-SERVICE COCKTAIL
Like Detox, this cocktail provides freshness and a sensory experience beyond just taste. If garnished with Sichuan Buttons, also called buzz buttons or electric daisies, a pleasant tingling sensation will accompany the cocktail.
2.5 cl Earl grey sirup
2.5 cl Lemon juice
5 cl Non-alcoholic distillate
Garnish: Sichuan Buttons or any garnish of your choice
Combine all the ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Shake about 25 times until the saker is cold and slowly pour the mix through a cocktail strainer into a glass with ice. Top with the garnish, and enjoy.
