“Summer cocktails shouldn’t just be for poolside enjoyment,” shares Amanda Fraga, beverage manager at The Genuine Hospitality Group. “The thinking here was to liven the list by adding fruit in interesting ways. We chose a grassy, bright spirit like Pisco in a Pineapple Pisco Sour for a result that is neither sticky nor sweet, and shines with the classic combination of pineapple and lime. Peaches are finally coming in, so we wanted to celebrate that with a play on sweet tea. Jojo’s oolong brings a floral, nutty balance to mellow this fragrant stone fruit and its orchards full of ‘Millions of Peaches’.”
