Squirrel Horchata

Horchata may seem a strange mate for alcohol, but its nutty, citrusy base is a perfect vehicle for a Squirrel Sour cocktail (a base spirit, lemon or lime juice, and a nut-flavored liqueur). Although there’s no lime included in this recipe, the horchata itself has enough lime in it to qualify this drink as a variation on the Squirrel Sour.

What to buy: Ron Zacapa Centenario is an aged Guatemalan rum that can be found at specialty liquor stores. If you can’t find it, you can substitute another aged rum.

This recipe was featured as part of our Cinco de Mayo cocktail menu.

Instructions

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and add remaining ingredients. Stir vigorously with a barspoon until chilled. Pour into a rocks glass and serve with a swizzle stick.
