Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love a good margarita as much as the next person, but I also love a good pisco sour. So sometimes I try and make both those drinks happen in some way at the same time and because its strawberry season this drink was created:
We’d like to make a toast to sunny days and childhood memories. That’s what this drink tastes like to us.
It tastes like running around with no shoes in the slanting afternoon light searching for the honeysuckles with the sweetest nectar and pretending not to hear when your parents call you in for the night.
And all of this wild child taste is hidden by an elegant and sophisticated exterior that makes it perfect for any occasion.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1.25 ounces Asian pear juice
1.25 ounces elderflower liqueur
Brut or champagne to fill flute
honey and ginger sugar to rim glass
Start by rimming your flute with honey and ginger sugar. Don’t be alarmed when the honey starts to drip down the glass, it will add a hauntingly gorgeous look to your cocktails and give your guests an excuse to lick their fingers.
Pour pear juice and the elderflower liqueur into flute, top off with bubbly and enjoy!
