Fall’s sudden and somewhat abrupt appearance has me craving all things warm and cozy. And while it’s the season of pumpkin and spices, I’m mixing things up with a lemon and ginger mezcal cocktail.
Lemons may not be the first ingredients to come to mind for a fall-inspired cocktail, but they offer a freshness that pairs perfectly with the heat of ginger and smokiness of Mezcal. Although both tequila and mezcal come from the agave plant, the flavor profile is distinctly different.
My romance with pears continues with the most perfect way to cap an incredibly full week – a Pear, Ginger and Sage Cocktail. Delicious fall flavours in a glass is how I would describe it. Sweet and crisp perfection.
The mild heat of the ginger is balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the simple syrup and pear nectar, which by the way I had never tried until now. It’s delicious and great in morning smoothies if you have any left over 😉
Happy Weekend Friends!
I have always loved the idea of an Old Fashioned, there is something understatedly sophisticated about it. And I especially admire women who drink them! They are far to strong a drink for me, so I was thrilled to come across this take on the Old Fashioned by The Little Epicurean. A fruitier, mellower drink, perfect for the holidays and entertaining!
The process may seem involved, but it’s worth the work and the Simple Syrup and Brandied Cranberries will keep for weeks.
