It’s been a delicious summer…weekends filled with play and sunshine, trips to the beach and the mountains, and of course, the odd cocktail or ten.
That brings us to my new favorite recipe, a fruity libation known as the Pink & Green. It’s a cleaner cousin of the Kir Royale, the classic French cocktail that consists of champagne topped with crème de cassis. To make a Pink & Green (photo above), squeeze the juice of half a lime into a wine glass, and add a healthy splash of cassis. Pour seltzer over the lime and cassis, and top with a lime wedge. Serve with or without rocks. Delicious!
What does this have to do with curry? Not much, although it does borrow a few elements of Thai cuisine, namely mixing sour with sweet. (Cassis, a gorgeous red liquer made from blackcurrants, is quite sweet.) And it’s perfect to drink with a curry meal. Enjoy!
