I spent a long number of years in the bar business and have a good repertoire of cocktails to call on. When the PR person for Beverage Artistry-The Perfect Puree of NapaValley offered to send over some samples of their product I said, "Sure let's give them a try." In my past experience cocktail mixers were horrible things; I was a bit skeptical of what might show up.
When FedEx delivered the frozen samples I popped open the box and started opening the containers to inspect what was inside. The first one that caught my eye was El Corazon (the heart). I spooned a bit into my mouth and the flavor exploded! It captured my heart indeed. This company has taken the time to prepare some excellent purees and provide expert recipes that will make exceptional cocktails on the professional level or at home. For this post I concentrated on the El Corazon and the White Sangria and used the product in cocktails that I would normally make. The results were stunning. I look forward to experimenting with more flavors.
The El Corazon is described as a melange of blood orange, passion fruit and pomegranate. I used it in a Margarita. My wife's reaction to her first sip "boy that's good!"
Add the White Sangria to some Sauvignon Blanc and instant Sangria!
Perfect for a Friday Night Cocktail
