|Persea Martini: Seaspice|
Ok. Cinco de Mayo brings lots of smiles and a celebration of Mexican victory. At the same time, we toast the food and drink of Mexico.
Earlier this week I wrote a roundup of great cocktails using Mezcal and Tequila to mark this special holiday.
And then I remembered that back in February, I was pitched a drink recipe for a martini using Baron Silver Tequila -- and me being a martini loyalist - I was immediately smitten by this cocktail’s glamour and taste. And use of the creamy avocado in a drink.
I decided to keep it for Cinco de Mayo to mark this special occasion in a unique way.
Seaspice, Miami’s stunning riverside dining destination introduced its Persea Martini.
Displaying a keen sense of balance by expert mixologist Atilla Kocsis using Baron tequila, fresh avocado, pineapple juice, lemon juice, simple syrup, and garnished with fresh black pepper, the result is a melodious Mexican medley.
1 spoon of avocado
¾ simple syrup
¾ lemon juice
1oz pineapple juice
1.5oz Baron Silver Tequila
Fresh black pepper
Add all ingredients in the order listed above into the shaker on the rocks.
Shake vigorously until the avocado liquefies
Pour mix into a martini glass
Garnish with fresh black pepper
