It’s finally April and Easter weekend put me in the mood for a fun rosé cocktail. I was inspired by my Bonne Maman marmalade to make something along the lines of a Breakfast Martini or the original Marmalade Cocktail, but one thing led to another and I ended up with this bittersweet blend of crisp rosé, lemon, Campari, marmalade, and orgeat.
I love creating cocktails, but my first culinary passion is actually baking. Today I was working on some beet tuile cookies and ended up burning the first few while I figured out the process. The smoky, pan-fried beet cookies were strangely appealing, so I decided to break out the peaty Scotch and turn my cooking mishap into a dreamy, smoky, beet cocktail.
Happy National Margarita Day! ? I’m celebrating with a sweet and tangy passionfruit + kiwi margarita, complete with festive garnish. I had a lot of fun with this one when I realized that a passionfruit fit perfectly in the depression of my margarita glass. I created a tiered garnish with passionfruit and lime halves and topped it with a slice of kiwi and a sprig of mint. What are you drinking today?
