It’s almost winter and with every new season, I like to share a new cocktail. I always like to see what’s in season to create my drinks, since that will make it easier for you to re-create too. Berries are in season so they were perfect for this winter’s cocktail. This recipe is super simple to make and only contains three ingredients. Yes, three ingredients is all you’ll need to pull off this pretty drink. The rest is garnish and all the pretty things.
One detail I really love about this drink is the sugar and salt blend on the rim. To accomplish this detail, add equal amounts of sugar and salt to a small plate. Gently mix with your hands. Squeeze a lime quarter juice on to the rim of glass. Flip the cup upside down, and swirl the rim in the sugar/salt blend. It will coat the rim nicely – perfect for tasting before your first sip!
