Is it December already? You know what that means, Christmas-inspired cocktails!
You didn’t think I’d leave you hanging with just ONE use for that Spiced Panela syrup did you?
Psst… the secret is in the syrup.
Looking for a twist on a classic Margarita recipe? Try this one on for size, it has the perfect balance of smokey flavors from the Tequila and Mezcal along with the sugar and spice from Cocktail Crate’s Spiced Old Fashioned mix, Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile liqueur, pineapple juice and red chili pepper. Its perfect for laying out by the pool or in a tumbler soaking up the rays at the beach.
I’ve made a ton of cocktails over the past few years, but if I were to label one a Holy City Handcraft ‘Signature’ cocktail, this particular one may have come closest. Check out my collaboration with Striped Pig Distillery and Charleston Food Writer (Candy Herriott) as I create one of the best cocktails I’ve ever made (if I do say so myself) — recipe after the jump!
I’ve been thinking of trying to create more refreshing drinks using Aperol. While Aperol is traditionally used in Summer cocktails like the Aperol Spritz, which has been dubbed ‘the perfect drink for social occasions’, Spring and Summer go hand in hand here in the Holy City. Try this cocktail recipe on for size, you’ll find it’ll cool you down while you’re sitting on your back porch or playing some badminton (right?) during those hot Charleston Spring days.
