The latest in the Ch’i Cocktail series designed by the supreme mixologists of Red Bar, Auckland City.
Bringing you a mix of THE most delicious flavours, to scintillate any palate!
SPICY-CH’I COCKTAIL – Great with Tacos!
1 x stick Lemongrass (freshly grated)
Pinch of Turmeric
Juice of 1 x fresh Lime
35 ml of Sacred Springs Barrel Aged Gin – a herby, woody taste.
15 ml of Mezcal – to bring the smokey flavour through.
A splash a CH’I Sugar Free / Ginseng & Ginger OR Lemongrass & Lime – (if too strong, add more Chi to dilute it a bit)
NB: Ginger and Turmeric – same family / quite similar
Use a microplane (a small grater) and add grated, fresh lemongrass in a mixing glass with the lime. Stir for a few seconds.
Put gin into mixture. Stir until combined.
Add Mezcal to bring flavour through.
Tales from the tasters (Red Bar at 95bFm Cocktail Corner):
Should be turning yellow – an “egg yolk colour.”
If too strong for your liking, “maybe shots?”
“It looks like a twisted tropical drink.”
