If you've ever tried chanh muối, or Vietnamese lemonade, you may have some idea of how this drink tastes. Made with clementine juice and muddled citrus, along with some Lumette alt-gin and Strathcona Orange Bitters, the real kicker in this drink comes in the form of a simple pinch of Kosher salt.
This month, Token CEO Keenan Pascal joined Jo from Mock-Ups Mocktails, along with VIP special guest Amarjeet Mayor Sohi to learn how to make this bright and utterly sippable mocktail. If you didn't catch the reel series on Token's Instagram, (shot in the beautiful Black Pearl Seafood Bar on 104th Street) here's the straight recipe:
- Juice of 1.5 clementines
- 3 wedges of lemon
- Half of (peeled) clementine
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 1.5 oz honeyed sage liqueur*
- ½ oz Lumette
- 2 droppers of strathcona orange bitters
Muddle clementine and lemon with all liquids and salt. Shake with lots of ice (you want it to be super chilled). Serve in a martini or coupe glass. Garnish with clementine peel cut into leaf shape, along with sage leaf.
*Honeyed Sage Liqueur:
Simmer 1 cup of water with 10-12 sage leaves for 2 minutes. Stir in 2 heaping tablespoons of your favourite honey, remove from heat. Allow to steep for 20 minutes. Strain and store in fridge.
