Here is a winter recipe to match the brief dusting of snow we have had in Upstate NY. This bright, flavorful cocktail will give you the same little shiver as walking outside on a brisk, winter morning.
Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, outdoor fun and BBQs. I wanted to create a drink that makes me think of all these things. Obviously my first thought was a cold beer, but next was watermelon on a hot day and basil topping a fresh caprese salad.
My husband started making this cocktail a few years back, and over the years it had gotten lost. In reviving it, I thought, can it be purple without using blue curacao? I mean, what is that stuff? Gives me the chills.
