Spring into the New Season with Spicy, Fruity and Wickedly Good Drinks From Tommy Bahama

At Tommy Bahama the beginning of Spring is marked with sexy swimsuits, sophisticated yet relaxed sportswear, and some of the freshest, spiciest, wickedest drinks you could hope to sip on. This season of rebirth and renewal we are marking with the most flavorful drinks we could mix up. So welcome the warmer months ahead by freshening up your wardrobe and mixing up these tantalizing drinks of the month. And if you can’t get to one of the 13 Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bars, try bringing paradise home by following these recipes.
 
Spicy Kumquat Margarita – Add some kick to your drink mixing routine by slicing and stirring in some spicy jalapeno. This flavorful twist on your basic margarita will have you dreaming of a Mexican vacation. Muddle the jalapeno and kumquat in the lime juice, add Sauza Conmemorativo, Cointreau and scratch sour.  Add ice and mix.  Pour into glass, garnish with a jalapeno slice.
 
2 dime sized jalapeno slices
1 kumquat, sliced
½ lime squeezed
2 parts Sauza Conmemorativo
1 part Cointreau
1 ½ parts scratch sour
 
Wicked Pineapple Swizzle – At Tommy Bahama we are not known for our wicked side – but it is the ideal description for this swizzle libation created by Tommy Bahama Rumologist Jack Terry. He took fresh pineapple juice and added a velvet Falernum for a taste that is so good…it’s bad. Add all ingredients together except the soda water.  Mix over ice in glass.  Top with soda.  Garnish with a lime slice.
 
2 parts Mount Gay Eclipse
¾ part Velvet Falernum
1 ½ parts pineapple juice
2 dashes bitters
1 part club soda
 
Pear Flower Martini – Spring time is the perfect time to indulge in a light and fresh cocktail infused with the sparkling bubbles of champagne…a perfect sipper for those warm spring weekends. Add all ingredients together except the champagne. Shake with ice 20 times. Pour into a martini glass and top with champagne.  Garnish with a mint sprig.
 
2 parts Pear Vodka
1 part St-Germaine
¾ part scratch sour
¼ part champagne or sparkling wine

Please drink responsibly.
