Two Awesome Experiments

Noelle bought some lilikoi (passionfruit) this afternoon, and had the brilliant idea of turning our useless, crappy tequila into a useful, delicious infusion. I used the lilikoi-quila to make a sour:

Lilikoiquila Sour

1.5 oz infused tequila

.75 oz lemon juice

1 oz simple syrup

Shake well with ice, garnish with lemon peel and angostura.

(No picture of this one - Noelle's mom drank it too fast...)

Another excellent drink was inspired by Mrs. Chun's love of both sours and fruit. "What about preserves? Could you use...let's see, we have.. apricot preserves.."

Well, I don't know Mrs. Chun... you tell me:

The Squirrelly Bird

1.5 oz Wild Turkey Rye

.25 oz apricot preserves

.75 oz simple

.75 oz lemon juice

Shake really, really well. Garnish with lemon peel and Fee's Whiskey Barrel Aged bitters.
