I am so happy to finally be able to share the recipe, Miss Caipi, created for the Mr. Nono Cocktail. I already introduced the recipe during the “Give To Receive” Pop Shop Event during the holidays. The name Mr. Nono, it is the name of a character introduced on the Blog post ” What Is It to Be a Cool Girl”, people really loved the funny name!
I might come out of other versions of this drink using the same name, maybe different fruits depend on the season and the circumstances of the Event. The drink was mixed under the Mr. Nono mood, mysterious and not sweet at all. I used angostura bitters, lemon juice and a splash of orange juice and a touch of honey to balance all the ingredients. It can be mixed with Sake, Vodka or even bourbon. If you are not the type that like sweet drinks, this one will suit you perfectly. Let’s learn how to make a Mr. Nono Caipi!
1 1/2 oz of Vodka or Bourbon or Sake
4 Oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1tsp of honey
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake well and pour into a rock glass filled with ice, you can garnish with a slice of orange.
*If you want to make the non-alcoholic version of the drink, just replace the liquor by water*
And if you want to use for a party or get together with friends the recipe can be done in a carafe or dispenser too. Now it is time to enjoy the Mr. Nono Cocktail, and if you like this recipe or want to share your experience making the Mr. Nono Cocktail leave a comment in the box below.
