Along with sunshine, sand, and surf, summer comes with another perk… tropical flavors! The warm-weather months are the ideal time to take advantage of all the delicious ingredients that are ripe for the picking. So, with the help of my friends at Prairie Organic Spirits, I am giving you one delectable cocktail and dessert pairing that you won’t soon forget. Who is up for an Organic Pineapple Basil cocktail paired with a strawberry coconut cupcake?!
I am all about the organic life. Whenever humanly possible, I make sure that everything I consume and serve to loved ones is organic. That includes alcohol! That is why I highly recommend Prairie Organic Spirits. It is the #1 organic brand in its category and sources all of its corn from Minnesota family farms. Plus, it’s absolutely premium in flavor and quality. So now let’s get down to the pairing!
With summer freshness in mind, I suggest pairing my Pineapple Basil cocktail recipe with an organic strawberry coconut cupcake. The basil beautifully balances the tartness of the pineapple. Meanwhile, the drink’s dash of rose water connects the sweet, floral flavors of the strawberry cupcake. Lastly, topping the treat off with toasted coconut shreds allows for the tropical-floral pairing to come full circle. It’s an absolutely delightful combination.
You simply can’t whip up this cocktail without the help of Prairie Organic Vodka. It is absolutely fantastic. The Prairie Organic brand has a passion for craftsmanship that comes through with every sip. It is beautifully smooth, which stems from the spirit’s rich corn base and the brand philosophy of ‘distilling to taste’. If you’re unfamiliar with ‘distilling to taste’, this is when the master distillers taste each batch of spirits and tweak the recipe until perfection is reached, instead of the prescribed number of times. Prairie Organic has even launched the Spirit of Change Fund to contribute portions of sales to helping conventional farmers transition to organic. Pretty cool, huh?!
Note: If you’re really looking to add a bit of mystery to this cocktail, then replace the Prairie Organic Vodka ingredient with their Cucumber Vodka. It has a gorgeously refreshing smoothness that is enhanced by the delicious cucumber infusion.
There you have it, friends! A delectable pairing to ring in the summer months. Make sure to pick up a few bottles of Prairie Organic Spirits to recreate today’s recipe. Plus it’s just good to have a bottle on hand since it is the first USDA Certified Organic spirits brand. Happy sipping!
