This cocktail is dedicated to our dear, smart, funny, handsome, brilliant, blog buddy, Dr. Mark.
This inspired cocktail is form a great cocktail book that Mark gave us, “The little Philippine bar book” has some fun, exotic cocktails. Filled with exotic fruits mixed with tasty alcohols, it’s a wonderful book to drink your way through. Here’s the Palsy Walsy Kalamansi lime cocktail to give you a preview. The only change we’ve made is to shake it with ice and serve them as shooters. This kalamansi lime cocktail recipe should make about 2 shooters or 1 cocktail.
Mark, Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, warm heart, humor , friendship and taking the time out of your BUSY Los Angeles visit to spend with us. We’re so fortunate to have finally met up with you and shared a meal. You have many, many blog fans out there (besides us!) and we hope that, one day, they get the lucky opportunity to meet you too. We truly mean every word of this.
Here’s three shooter cheers to you Mark!
