Tequila is such a versatile spirit. With the traditional Margarita cocktail being a great recipe to play around with.
30ml Tequila Reposado
20ml Lemongrass and Lime Syrup
20ml Lychee Purée
15ml Blue Curaçao
20ml Lime Juice
2 dashes of Orange bitters
Drops of saline
Add tequila, syrup, purée, Curaçao, lime juice and bitters to a shaker.
Shake like the gem that you are – wild and without a care in the world.
Fine strain over blue ice spheres and add drops of saline to taste.
Garnish with lychee twirl.
I am so happy that you can’t hear me reading this out loud… the South Africa. In me calls it a l(ee)chee and the anglicised part of me l(eye)chee – it’s a to(may)to to(maaa)to scenario here. If you’re still with me and are having a chuckle at saying it out loud… I know you just did ? let me know how you pronounce it please ??
Cheers and happy Saturday guys and dolls.
