So this morning I posted Diana’s @onebroadsjourney sunset cocktail. The recipe sounded incredible so I made my own ‘Four Seasons’ cocktail with the ingredients I had on hand.
2 oz @espolontequila Reposado tequila infused with seeds of 1 cardamom pod for 6 hours)
2 oz @aperolspritzofficial
2 oz freshly squeezed ruby pink grapefruit juice.
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously until combined. Double strain into your favourite cocktail glass. Serve with grapefruit peel rose garnish*
Result: This is pretty damn close to bitterness perfection.
* to learn how to make the garnish, I watched a YouTube and it cracked me up laughing….Apparently, the key to peeling all in one strip is like marriage…. it takes patience and perseverance – and if you can’t peel it one strip, you don’t have the qualities you need to be a good wife….I failed the test….but I think Mr Margarita puts up with me because he has a margarita waiting for him every other day…now that’s love!
