Kumquat Cocktail

Mar 8th
Coconut Kumquat Cocktail

We made this kumquat cocktail with fruits that we were able to score at the local market. It’s a little labor intensive, but definitely worth the effort. This drink brings some exotic, caribbean flair to the spring with its nice citrus and coconut flavors. Once again, the original recipe is by Christopher Longoria, Bar Manager at 1760 in San Francisco.
