Pinkies Up! - Solbeso Cacao Cocktails

Solbeso, roughly translated to "sun-kissed" I suppose, has recently launched the first spirit to have been distilled from the cacao fruit (hand-sourced from countries such as Peru and Ecuador), resulting in smooth, concentrated aromas and a refined flavor. Although currently only available in Miami and NYC during this preliminary phase, below are several cocktails to ask for by name--and to make in your own home soon!

The Birds & The Bees
2 parts Solbeso
.5 part lemon juice
.5 part honey syrup

Combine ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake, then strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon peel.

Solbeso + Iced Tea
2 parts Solbeso
2.75 parts iced tea
.75 part simple syrup

Build in a highball glass over cubed ice. Stir and garnish with a wheel of lemon. 

Cheers--and do enjoy!
