Aloha to a sunny new day!
1/2 oz Lillet Blanc
1/2 oz Blood Orange Reduction (or organic concentrate)
approximately 4 oz brut champagne or sparkling wine
slice of blood orange
Truffle Salt (Selezione Tartufi Sale con Tartufo 10%)
Place Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal, Lillet Blanc and the blood orange reduction in a shaker and shake with cubed ice. Strain into champagne flute that has been half rimmed with truffle salt. Slowly top with brut sparkling wine and garnish with a slice of blood orange. In regard to Forbidden Island, it has been a wonderful adventure, and I was pleased to spend nearly three years behind the bamboo stick there. In the sea of rum, limes, pineapples and glorious aloha, I don't regret a single moment, and will cherish all of those memories for a lifetime. However, I've got a VERY exciting adventure ahead of me, and each and every one of you will want to keep track of me in the coming months, so remember to swing by here or follow me on Twitter (@rumnpineapple and @spindriftsuz) for all of the updates on my latest project. I'M not going anywhere - so don't worry! If anything, you'll be seeing and hearing a lot more from me! I'll see YOU there - EVERYWHERE! Suzanne
