From the bartender’s corner – Misti Paan

“Misti Paan” is the Bengali name for an after meal treat you often have. It is basically some slaked lime, chopped betel nuts, “khair“, gulkhand (rose petal extracts) and some other stuff that I do not know wrapped in a betel leaf in the shape of a triangle. A flattened samosa if you will.

In an effort to bring out that effect on the nose and palate, I made this drink with Paan liqueur (talked about this new find previously), gulkhand (got from amazon), vodka and Sambuca.

It is getting pretty close. Next time I am going to drop in a little sugar syrup.

Some of you had written that you love Paan liqueur. If you come up with some variations of your own, please let me know.
