The Pocket Cocktail
In this series, we pair one of unique print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going. Today’s edition is perfect for warmer months and is easy to make, shared with us by Emily of Gastronomista. You’ll find it’s a wonderful libation for spring parties or to serve as a pre-dinner cocktail at home.
Altos Hibiscus Ginger Tequila and Tonic
[inspired by our Attica pocket square]
Hibiscus and ginger take this T.N.T. to the next level, adding a layer of sweetness and spiciness.
- 2 oz Altos Reposado Tequila
- 3 oz Strong Tonic Hibiscus
- 3 oz Strong Tonic Ginger
Build in a glass with large ice cubes, stir, and garnish with a piece of candied ginger and a sprig of fresh thyme.
Notes: This garnish introduces an herbal note to cut through the sweetness of the hibiscus, and provides a sweet and spicy treat at the end of the cocktail.
