I took a cocktail class with a friend a few years ago and one thing I learned from it is how good kumquats are! Kumquats may look like mini oval oranges but they are much more bitter. I had always written them off until a mixologist had taught us to muddle them. The mix of the sugar, citrus and herbs makes for a refreshing summer kumquat cocktail.

Key Ingredients in This Kumquat Cocktail Recipe

  • Gin – Gin is made by distilling grains like wheat or barley with botanicals. To be considered gin, juniper must be prominently featured and a notable flavor profile. Other common ingredients used to flavor gin are orange, coriander, cardamom, pepper or licorice. The base of gin is a neutral spirit, often vodka. 
  • Kumquat – Kumquats are small citrus the size of a grape with a very tart flavor. Muddling them with the sugar helps to offset the tartness.
