If you're looking for a refreshing drink to kick the weekend off in style, this is it! The kumquat is a popular Asian citrus fruit which roughly translates to "Gold Orange." November to March are ideal growing months so they are popping up in groceries stores across the country now.
The Spiegels have been taking full advantage of kumquat season and are always down for whisky, hence today's cocktail, The Kumquat Kooler!
The Kumquat Kooler
-Muddle 5 kumquats and a few sprigs of mint
-Add 1 shot of Maker's Mark
-Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice
-Pour into a highball glass and top with Ginger Ale (we use Diet)
This is the perfect drink to sip with the recent warm weather! Enjoy!
