There was a temporary hiatus, but fear not because Bex's Creative Cocktails is back! Today she's bringing you a light, slightly less-ragey-than-usual tequila drink and to make things even more awesome, she made a badass video for you to really get into the mood. I'll let her tell you about.
You know, sometimes I don’t think Tequila gets enough love. Or maybe it’s too much. Not sure which way to look at it. But. I think, more often than we’d like to admit maybe, when we hear tequila…our mind remembers shots. And the shots that led to more shots. And then death that followed. It’s gotten such a reputation from the blurry memories at the questionable bars, the overly spirited Cinco de Mayo celebrations, the unexpected weeknight adventures, and dancing at those clubs you said you’d never go to. So, let’s take a moment and refresh. I want to take a brief sidebar, and bring in the love and life that tequila can also have—as an attempt to show that it can be a pillow, and not necessarily a headache. So here’s “Time Turner” the latest of Bex’s Creative Cocktails, as my (somewhat) classier and lighter approach to such venom. With my current Croatian pear liqueur obsession in hand, here’s my welcomingly sweet cocktail of pear and lavender with a cloud-like texture to lift you up. Simple. Tasty. And hopefully you’ll remember it in a good way.
· 1 oz Pear Liqueur
· ½ Simple Syrup
· 2 dashes Lavender Bitters
· 1 Egg White
· Angostura Bitters
*Dry shake all ingredients (except Angostura Bitters) with egg white to get the froth, then add ice to chill and shake thoroughly to get the correct consistency. Fine strain into a coupe or martini glass. Pour Angostura Bitters into its cap or your jigger, and with a cocktail straw create a simple swirl design on top.
