Cocktails Not of the Prawn Variety
This International Cocktail Day, join Amity Fish Co and our friends the Kings of Cocktails, Boozy Events, on a journey to discover the best seafood and spirit pairings to make the most out of your Amity catch!
We often tend to pair wines with seafood but the right cocktail combo can elevate your fish dish to new levels.
No prawn cocktails here… top mixologist (thats a cocktail wizard to you and me), Terrence from Boozy Events has given us some great guidelines for adding a little glamour to your seafood as well as his own delicious cocktail recipe…
So What Works?
“The addition of acid in alcoholic beverages is what will bring out the big flavours in seafood,” says Terrence.
“Using the combination of grapefruit, lime and passionfruit creates a forward-leading citrus feel while staying clear of the old, rusty and boring seafood cocktails.”
“You’ll find Passionfruit in the ‘Pornstar Martini‘, voted as the UK’s Number One cocktail last year, but we love creating our own signature recipes too using bold and trendy flavours.”
You can read on to see how Terrence has added his own Boozy Events twist to a citrus classic that will pair amazingly with your Amity orders.
And what about the Classics?
Terrence’s advice is not to forget about the huge variety of classic drinks out there that inspire his work.
“A certain amount of acid is needed to bring out the bold, beautiful flavours of seafood. Therefore, cocktails made with tomato, lemon, and lime juices are ideal. Think how these flavors make you feel. They’re cool and refreshing which play into the summertime theme. They give off a light vibe, one that doesn’t mask the tastes you should be enjoying when you have fresh fish and lobster.”
Sounds ideal to us.
