This amazingly refreshing tequila cocktail is another one of my all time favorites and so it was, of COURSE going to be included in last Friday’s launch menu. In the past I’ve always used Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur but I was excited to try Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur for a number of reasons: 1) I hadn’t tried it before 2) It’s made in Brooklyn! 3) I’ve heard amazing things about it and 4) The maker of this new, buzzed about liqueur and I have friends in common! I was not disappointed. I look forward to experimenting more with this spicy number.
For the launch I had made recipe cards with a slightly different ratio, closer in taste to a margarita. But this is what I actually MADE at the launch, and the way I actually prefer it. The coconut water smooths out the cucumber, tequila, ginger and citrus, and the end result is a bright blend of some of my favorite summer flavors. I’d love to hear your feedback if you do decide to make this or a variation on it. Brighton Beach it up this weekend!
