Pour Mes Amis - Cocktail Inspiration

I love papaya with orange juice. I’ve decided to complement this mixture with cassis liqueur and tequila reposado. To spice it up a little I’ve added pink peppercorn. Somehow it came out kind of mexican. Great!

In a cocktail shaker:
• 1,5 oz papaya puree
• 1,5 oz orange juice
• 1,5 oz tequila reposado
• Pink peppercorn (around 10 seeds)*
• Ice

>> Cassis liqueur to layer the bottom of the cup
>> Orange zest to garnish

* With a muddler crush the seeds in the cocktail shaker before adding the rest of the ingredients. Shake well and double strain it.

Adoro suco de mamão com laranja. Decidi complementar essa mistura com licor de cassis e tequila reposado. Para dar um toque picante adicionei pimenta rosa. O resultado foi algo do tipo mexicano. Ótimo!

Numa coqueteleira:
• 1 dose de purê de mamão
• 1 dose de suco de laranja
• 1 dose de tequila reposado
• Pimenta rosa (por volta de 10 sementes)*
• Gelo

>> Licor de cassis para camada no fundo da taça
>> Casca de laranja para decorar

* Com um socador amasse as sementes na coqueteleira antes de adicionar o resto dos ingredientes. Agite bem e coe duas vezes.
