Bartenders prepare high definition drinks using premium spirits and fresh ingredients. SAIA was generous and shared two of their cocktail recipes with me.
– 2oz Pisco Patrón
– 1 fresh egg white
– 1oz lime juice
– 1oz blue Curaçao
– 1 dash Peychaud’s Bitters
Method: Combine the first 4 ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake and strain into a martini glass. Pour a dash of Bitters in the center and create the star using a toothpick.
