How better to welcome spring and say goodbye to citrus season then with a fresh citrus cocktail? Aptly named, I can’t take credit for this one. my husband created this cocktail for me and it was so tasty that I had to share it with you. This is the perfect way to get rid of those last couple of runty clementines/tangerines/cuties or whatever late season, super sweet, slightly withered citrus you have lingering in your fruit bowl.
This is essentially a riff on a daiquiri, with the addition of the fresh citrus and some Pisco for a floral note. This is a very spirit forward cocktail, and though I didn’t feel the need, if your citrus is not on the very sweet side you might want to add a touch of simple syrup for balance.
1 1/2 oz. Kuleana HuiHui white rum
3/4 oz. Capurro pisco
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/4 oz dry curaçao
Add all of the ingredients to a shaker, mudldle the clementine segments. Add ice and shake until very cold. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with some peel.
