Aviation week continues with Andes Air
Each side of South America produces a spirit for mixed drinks. To the west there is pisco, a grape distillate; on the east side is cachaca, distilled from fermented sugar cane juice. Cachaca is our hero today in a foamy blend with citrus and a touch of sweetness.
2 ounces cachaca
1 1/2 ounces fresh tangerine juice
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1/2 of the white of an egg
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Add all the ingredients to a ice filled shaker. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds until icy and foamy. Strain into a chilled large martini glass. Sprinkle a dash of Angostura on top before serving.
