“Ohana Acres” Forever – David Kneller
- 3 Berries, washed & stemmed (Strawberries, Mulberries, Blueberries, etc.)
- ½ ounce Mexican Cane Sugar Simple Syrup
- Recipe for Syrup (¼ cup Mexican Cane Sugar, ¼ cup Water. Bring these items to a boil and cool)
Muddle the strawberries with the syrup in a pint glass.
- 1 ½ ounces Don Julio Repesada
- ½ ounce Cointreau
- ½ ounce Fresh Squeeze Orange Juice
- ¼ ounce Fresh Squeeze Lime Juice
Add the remaining spirits & juices. Fill the glass with ice, cover with a shaker,
vigorously shake 100 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
- 2 Cilantro Leaves
- Dash of Espelette(dried medium hot Mexican pepper blend)
Slap the cilantro leaves between your hands. This will lightly bruise the fresh herb and release its natural aromatic oils. Tear the leaves in 2 or 3 pieces and garnish the top of the drink with them. Toss a pinch of espelette in the drink to offer a touch of heat. Use as desired. Enjoy!
