Mariska And Rye
This beautiful cocktail was crafted around Swedish Rekorderlig hard cider. Drink it while wearing a flower crown, dancing, singing and celebrating the Swedish Midsommar!
“When deciding which liquor base to pair with the cider, I went through several different ones before settling on the rye. Mezcal was wonderful but it was simply too strong of a flavor profile to allow the passion fruit cider to be noticed." — Spencer Record, Bar Manager, 10 Grand Hospitality at The Line Hotel in LA
