Mandarin Pickle Hoop La Cocktail
"Mandarin pickle Hoop la! cocktail is a modern seasonal pickle twist on Harry Craddock's 1930 Hoop la! cocktail recipe from The Savoy Cocktail Book using a mandarin tarragon shrub syrup drinking vinegar along with equal parts of brandy, cointreau, and lillet blanc. The shrub syrup adds a bright punch of citrus and anise flavour and a sweet-sour depth to this cocktail along with a beautiful orange-yellow colour. The cocktail is garnished with a fresh tarragon flower for delicate anise flavour and aroma and a pop of orange-yellow colour. A beautiful craft cocktail reinterpreting a classic and little known vintage cocktail recipe."
