In our Happiest Hour series with AMASS botanical spirits, we talk content and cocktails (or mocktails)—giving you everything you need to set the mood.
Sugar and spice is the name of this game. Get on that back porch or balcony or rooftop of yours, even just crack a window. Just because we are spending most of our spring indoors doesn't mean summer isn't just around the corner and a chilled vodka beverage has your name on it. This week's simple, fool-proof recipe comes straight from Robby, sales director, and longtime beverage expert, at the Los Angeles-based spirit brand, AMASS. Be sure to try a pared-down non-alcoholic version.
what you'll need:
1.5 oz amass botanic vodka
1 oz lime juice
0.5 oz ancho reyes chili liqueur
0.5 oz simple syrup
2 thin slices of cucumber, for garnish
how to do it:
Pour ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously until cold. Serve up in a coupe glass and garnish with cucumber slices.
for a zero-proof option:
1.5 oz lime
1 oz simple syrup
½ jalapeno, seeds removed
Shake together and strain on the rocks. Top with club soda if desired.
