We recently put together a fun citrus-filled afternoon cocktail party with Celeste Noche Photography, and I'm so pleased to be able to share this recipe with you. The cocktail is on the sweeter side. If you like a stronger drink, you can add an extra 1/2 oz. of spirit and reduce the measure of the vanilla almond syrup by 1/4 oz.
Featured in our new drink is some vanilla almond syrup from Poor Man's Kitchen, a delightful new syrup company that started in a Brooklyn apartment and has since found its way onto Bravo TV. Their syrups are made by hand in small batches using natural ingredients and contain no preservatives or artificial colors.
Try them in cocktails, make your own unique soda with sparkling or soda water, use with your home carbonating device, add some flavor to your coffee or tea, or simply get creative and let us know what you come up with. Be sure to tag #mintandmirth so we can check out your amazing creations.
