Cocktails with Pimento

Can`t stop mixing with this! i made a few drinks when i reviewed Pimento and when i did that post i wished i could of added a few more drinks but that had to be left to a later post.

There´s so much nice drinks you can do with it and it´s just so nice to top up with a little pimento and you get a nice strong bite of ginger and chili to give any cocktail a kick!

So here´s a few more drinks with Pimento:

Pimento Punch

pimento punch

2 oz rhum agricole ( i used JM Reserve Special)

0.5 oz orgeat ( sugarcane syrup would work just fine too)

0.5 oz fresh lime juice

Top with Pimento

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail coupe that is rimmed with dark molasses sugar (or other dark sugar) and drop a thin slice of fresh ginger in the glass.

The formula is like a daiquiri with rhum agricole and orgeat or maybe we should say ti punch with orgeat!

This drink is light and fresh with a gingery note, perfect summer drink. You can double the recipe if you want and serve in a rocks glass instead, it really does go down quick!

Amazon

Drink with no name

2 oz aged cachaca

0.5 oz sugarcane syrup

0.5 oz fresh lime juice

Top with pimento

Add a generous float peychauds bitters

Shake with ice, except the pimento and peychauds and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice almost to the top. Top with pimento then add some more crushed ice to fill and finally pour a generous float of peychauds bitter on top of the ice.

Garnish with a roughly cut lime peel.

A spicy drink….

Pimento Mojito

MOJITO with Pimento

Gently muddle mint with sugarcane syrup (or fine sugar) and add 0.5 oz fresh lime juice and 2 oz white rum, i choose a flavorful rum like Plantation 3 Stars, El Dorado 3 year barrel aged or Denizen.

Top up with Pimento.

So here you go, Pimento is one of the perfect mixers!

Pimento is like a strong ginger beer with a hot bite of chili and a refreshing tonic quality.

As for now it`s sold in France, England, Holland, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Africa, Caribbean, Indian Ocean, Tahiti, Australia, Guadeloupe and Haiti and they are looking for distributors and can be contacted on their website.
