A type of mezcal distilled exclusively from the blue agave plant, primarily around Tequila, Mexico.
A distilled Mexican beverage made from any type of agave plant. The word mezcal comes from mexcalli or 'oven-cooked agave,' referring to the roasting of the agave plant before distillation, giving mezcal its signature smoky flavor.
A tropical fruit, used in many tropical cocktails for its sweet flavor and yellow color. You can either juice a real pineapple, buy pineapple canned in juice (not syrup) or buy pineapple juice in a container.
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
Water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved, creating a fizzy texture. We treat soda water, club soda, seltzer and sparkling water the same.
A tropical plant with a tart yellow fruit. Most often used in tiki cocktails and fizzes.
Add ingredients, except soda, to a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into chilled Collins glass with ice, top with club soda and garnish with two pineapple leaves. #shake #ontherocks
The sweet pineapple with a little smoky mezcal is a stroke of genius - credit goes to Dave Molyneaux.
