When would you serve this drink? “If there’s a perfect time to drink this cocktail, it would be during a sunset wherever you are in the world.”
What music would you pair it with? ““Mucha Muchacha” from Esquivel, the album’s name is Cabaret Mañana and, to be honest, the whole album is a great pairing with a happy life and a good drink.”
What food would you pair it with? “Tacos! Tasty and spicy!”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “My little brother Paul who lives in France because I miss him the most during this challenging time.”
