A Modern Variation of the 21st Century

Allow me to (re)-introduce this fantastic cocktail, which continues to cross my creative path over 2020. The White Cacao infused with Puya Chilies is the star of the cocktail✨
First created for the @ocusbg March meeting. Then she got another opportunity to shine when I was interviewed for @musicaroots bartenders spotlight in their premier issue :)
I’ve been playing with my infusions and syrups recently, challenging myself to make simple yet elegant cocktails... I made myself and my friends some unique and tasty creations, all which began from when I was inspired to create this beauty🦋

This cocktail is warm, rich, bright, and pleasantly complimented by the mild heat and deep flavor of the Puya chilis.
