So I decided to spend tonight in celebration to bid Adieu! I used a Japanese Shochu called iichiko. Shochu is a Japanese spirit distilled from barley, sweet potatoes or rice. It has a very clean and refreshing flavor, but use vodka if you can’t find it. I combined lime and pineapple juice, adding in a few drops of Angostura Bitters for a more “bittersweet” experience. Pair with crispy salmon and say farewell to summer and hello to fall!
Pineapple and Lime Cocktail Recipe
Split between two glasses, pour shochu (or vodka) over ice and sugar. Mix sugar to dissolve. Pour in a few drops of angostura bitters, pineapple and lime juice. Stir and enjoy! To garnish, add some pineapple chunks and slices of lime.
