Every year when the cherry blossoms start to bloom in Central Park I’ll pluck one (or two :)) to use as a cocktail garnish. This spring the blossoms started blooming just as I was experimenting with a cocktail for Cinco de Mayo for a partnership with @pasotetequila.
Using the Flavor Bible for inspiration, I made a cocktail with cherry juice, and an egg white. Margaritas might be the cocktail I would choose on a deserted island but on special occasions a good tequila deserves something a bit different from the usual. 🙂
Flor de Cerezo Tequila Cocktail
Perfect cocktail for Cinco de Mayo using Pasote Tequila!
- 1.5 oz Pasote Tequila
- 1 oz cherry juice
- .75 oz lemon juice
- .75 oz 1:1 honey syrup
- 1 egg white
- 1 dash Chile pepper
Dry shake the egg white in a shaker for 30 seconds. Add ice and all other ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe garnished with chile pepper and a cherry blossom!
