Another contextually seasonal husk cherry cocktail variation, this time with a tequila mule. (In the @tomdixonstudio Tank glass!) This summer I started growing husk cherries in my balcony garden and they've been a fun ingredient to test in a matrix of cocktails. (But my little balcony garden is definitely not providing enough husk cherries and I've had to go to the farmer's market for supplemental supplies.) :P Husk cherry Manhattans, husk cherry gimlets, husk cherry daiquiris, or even husk cherry margaritas... this tiny fruit has turned out to be the most lovely ingredient in a wide range of cocktails.
For this drink I took inspiration from a cocktail that I tried at the Experimental Cocktail Club in Paris using ginger beer, and fresh tomato juice. Substituting the tomatoes with ground cherries and adding a bit of the tomato family's best partner, basil, I created the Husk Cherry and Basil Buck!
🌱Husk Cherry and Basil Buck🌱
🔸.75oz fresh lime juice
🔸4+ husk cherries, with husks removed
🔸1 leaf of basil for garnish
🔸Ginger beer to top .
Add the tequila, lime juice, and husk cherries together in a shaker. Using a stick blender (or regular blender) blend the husk cherries until they are smooth. With a fine mesh strainer, strain out all pulp. Add ice and shake. Strain into a glass over ice and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a basil leaf.

Blood and Sands don’t get the same amount of love as other revamped classic cocktails. Blame it on the orange juice or blame it on the general lack of enthusiasm for Scotch cocktails. But when done right with fresh ingredients, the drink is refreshing, tart and goes down almost too easy. The Blood and Sand from @sauvage_nyc in Brooklyn gets it right 🍹 @blackbottle1879 Scotch • orange juice • cherry liqueur • orange bitters • lemon • orange flower water • orange slice garnish sprinkled with nutmeg🍹
