Perhaps I'm feeling nostalgic for the 31 years spent living in the San Francisco Bay Area, but I was glad to see that Boca Loca Cachaça thought to name a cocktail after Baghdad-By-The-Bay's legendary columnist Herb Caen.
Rachel Forrest, writing for SeacoastOnline.Com offers the "Herb Cane" (as in herbs and "sugar cane"... Get it? Har har...) along with other Boca-Loca-supplied recipes:
- 3 basil leaves
- 6 mint leaves
- 2 ounces Boca Loca Cachaça
- 0.5 ounce Chartreuse (green)
- 0.5 ounce brown sugar syrup
- 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 small orange peel
Muddle basil and mint into shaker. Pour in next four ingredients and shake vigorously with ice. Strain liquid into rocks glass. Squeeze essential oil from orange peel into drink and drop in for garnish.
You'll note there are two ellipses used above. True Caen fans will get the reference.
