Cocktail of the week: Communist Manifesto

Posted by

This week we are tasting Double Happiness‘ own version of the summer favourite, the ‘Margarita’. A cocktail whose origins are harder to track down than Wally, but we’re not interested in a history lesson are we? In this version of an “East meets Mexico” style cocktail, we take the classic Margarita and kick it in the side with a few extras. Tamarind syrup in lieu of orange liqueur, mandarin juice for an extra dimension, and to kick it all off, a blend of numbing Szechuan pepper and rock salt.

Here’s how:

50ml Tromba Blanco
30ml lime juice
20ml tamarind syrup
6 mandarin segments
Szechuan salt

Muddle mandarin segments in boston glass. Add tequila, lime juice and tamarind syrup to glass. Top with ice and shake hard for 10-15 seconds. Double Strain into a martini style glass, rimmed with Szechuan Salt.

Sip, savour and enjoy!

Somewhere Else video sings of summer

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
