We’ll never know if I came in fourth or dead last in the Tales of the Cocktail Drink Competition yesterday, but we can gaze longingly at the winner’s circle regardless.
Congratulations to those who won, and I hope the rest of you losers will post your own recipes in the comments. Here’s mine, the Brazil ’66 (with apologies to the great Sergio Mendez and the venerable French 75)
Brazil 66 Print Me
- 1 large or 2 medium strawberries, hulled
- .75 oz cachaça
- .75 oz orange liqueur (Cointreau or Citronge)
- .5 oz grenadine (preferably high-quality)
- 3 oz champagne
- Muddle strawberries and grenadine in bottom of a mixing glass until berries form a smooth paste. Add remaining ingredients and fill with ice. Stir ingredients until cold and strain into a chilled champagne flute. Garnish with a strawberry slice and mint sprig.
