The drink: Jalapeño & Tamarind Pisco Sour
The price: $12
The story: In a playful twist on Miami Spice, MO Bar + Lounge created a Bar Spice menu featuring classic cocktails paired with nontraditional chili peppers. The “Jalapeño & Tamarind Pisco Sour” is our pick for the fusion of a blended Peruvian pisco with jalapeños (an undeniably Mexican staple) in place of Lima’s beloved aji rocoto. Housemade falernum spiked with tamarind adds a sweet and sour flavor to the spicy Caribbean syrup often found in tiki drinks. Fresh lemon juice brightens the drink and rounds out MO’s island-style take on a pisco sour.
Where to find it: MO Bar + Lounge, Mandarin Oriental, 500 Brickell Key Dr., Miami.
