From the bartender’s corner – Coconut Vodka Cocktail
Like I mentioned yesterday, I am still experimenting with the coconut water Sharmila has bought. Today, I picked up a recipe from Trisha Yearwood from Food Network.
The original recipe called for ginger, but I went with a mix of ginger-garlic. Not because I had a sudden revelation but simply because that is the paste Sharmila had. Apparently, we are fresh out of ginger. In retrospect, it actually came out really well…
I used aa spoonful of lime juice, two ounces of vodka (Titos), two ounces of coconut water, a spoonful of agave nectar and a dash of ginger-garlic paste.
Was great – both to the nose and the palate. And the tiny bits of ginger-garlic floating in the cocktail as an emulsion gave it a nice look.
