Spicy & Sour

The Spicy & Sour is inspired by an oldie but goodie: the mojito. According to legend, the mojito is based on an even older concoction called ‘El Draque’. Privateer Sir Francis Drake is said to have served this drink to his swashbuckling companions. We’re sure he would have preferred the Spicy & Sour, though, judging by his hot temper.

Ingredients

1 EL (c.s., tbsp) Cane sugar

 

Garnish
Lime wedge
Sprig of mint

Preparation

  • Put the cane sugar, cubes of lime and sprig of mint into a highball glass and muddle.
  • Pour in the Ingwerer, vermouth and crushed ice and shake vigorously.
