Aloha Strawberry!

Aloha Strawberry

I saw a very tasty looking strawberry drink the other day and decided to make one similar and sort of “Tikify” the style of it and also swap the ginger beer for the hotter Pimento drink…

The original recipe (adapted from voyagevixens.com) was fresh strawberry puree, Angostura rum, ginger beer and a couple dashes Angostura bitters, simple and tasty.

Pimento is a ginger beer type of drink (it´s not an actual ginger beer) but with added chili pepper, it´s made with ginger, tonic and hot pepper natural flavors and it is fizzy and strong!! it`s like a ginger beer with a chili bite……

I like it a lot! I also like Angostura rums and bitters and of course, lime and strawberries!

Aloha Strawberry

¼ cup Strawberry purée

4 oz Angostura Single Barrel Rum (1919 works good too)

A small squeeze of fresh lime juice

Splash of Pimento

A few dashes of Angostura aromatic Bitters

Fill a Hurricane glass with ice, strawberry purée and a small squeeze of fresh vibrant lime juice, pour in rum, then top with Pimento and bitters. Stir and serve. Garnish with a fat juicy strawberry, red Hibiscus and Bouganvillea flowers, fresh mint, add a long and thick colorful straw….

Pimento can be found in various countries, you may check out their website and I know that in Sweden it`s available through Renbjer & Magnusson.

Bring on more heat and sun!

Now this blog takes a little break until it´s time to report what`s going on this year at the Tales of the Cocktail!

Aloha!
