A Cocktail Adventure
Repost from Life is But a Labyrinth A post written as it happened
During the week on The Fervent Shaker I saw a recipe called the Agave Kiss and thought “Yum!” I parked a notion in the rear of my mind, ‘should make that’ and I intended to.
On second reading, I discovered that it required Chambord, a raspberry infused brandy.
I had the tequila, I had the Creme de Cacão, I pondered the Chambord problem, I could use Creme de Cassis (blackcurrants), or perhaps Cherry Brandy. I opted for the former for my first effort.
I assembled the ingredients…
My recipe went like this: Two healthy splashes of Tequila, One healthy splash of Creme de Cacão, an unhealthy splash of Creme de Cassis, a half squeeze of fresh cream, twice (to make up that I didn’t have ‘double’ cream); added ice cubes and shook vigorously.
The result was this…
Not as pinky, but palatable.
The result is that I am quietly sipping the product on my deranged mind as I type. The keys are getting harder to find.
And I am only on my third glass…
I have decided to call it ‘The Blushing Agave’.
The story will not end here. It’s Sunday, might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb. I am going to repeat the experiment using Cherry Brandy.
Any further reports will be left for tomorrow, when I discover where I left the keyboard.
Having found the keyboard, I can assure you that the Cherry Brandy option was better, although less colourful.
