George's Keep's Butterfly Kisses

IMG_6304.jpg

Let’s be frank — though Summer is winding down, seasonal menus will stay put until the weather starts dipping into the 70s.

That having been said, this gives you more chances to try the Butterfly Kisses at George’s Keep! Created by bartender extraordinaire Nick Kenna, the Butterfly Kisses is a patio pounder worth ordering as it combines Kinsman rakia, with the botanicals of gin, lemon, and lavender Butterfly Pea Flower Tea simple syrup. Not familiar with Butterfly Pea Flower Tea? This blue tea is made from petals and is known for its dramatic change to purple when combined with a citrus agent, in this case lemon juice.

The result is a balanced cocktail that’s as beautiful as it is tasty.

Try it at home by combining 1 ounce Kinsman Rakia, 1 ounce gin, 3/4 ounce lemon juice, 3/4 ounce butterfly pea tea/ lavender syrup in a tin over ice; shake and strain into chilled coupe. Or put down the pumpkin spice and the scarves and order one at George’s Keep today!

It’s finished off with a light dusting of Trechas chile-sugar mix.
