Today’s weather report: If you can’t make a Hurricane, create a Tropical Storm. Here’s a refreshing, minty mix for the late summer and the beginning of a close tropical weather watch. Our brew is a minty riff on the egg white-based Pisco Sour with vodka in a leading role and pineapple juice and creme de menthe playing important minor parts.
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce fresh pineapple juice
1/4 ounce green creme de menthe
1 egg white
Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake without ice for 30 seconds. Add several ice cubes and shake for another 30 seconds. Strain unto chilled cocktail or small hurricane style glass. Garnish the foamy top with three tiny drops of green creme de menthe and swirl them in a circular motion.
