I haven’t had a lot of time lately to come up with cocktails, so it was fun working on some new stuff today. I received a bottle of Trä Kál a while ago & finally got around to mixing with it. This bottle is crazy; so different from anything I’ve tried before!
Apparently Trä Kál is a totally new type of spirit from Patagonia, & is made solely from local ingredients. It starts out like an apple & pear brandy but is then infused like a gin with local botanicals & essential oils. Like I said, I haven’t had anything quite like it. I enjoyed trying it in this little mule situation, but am excited to find other ways of mixing with it. Any ideas for me?
Build in glass over ice. Add spirits, syrup & bitters & briefly stir. Top with the spiciest ginger beer you can find. Garnish with fresh mint & a lime wheel.
