For this herbal spiced juice cocktail, San Diego bartender Lindsay Nader collaborated with Dave Fernie, then manager of the Parisian-style club Pour Vous in L.A. Fernie named the drink Lapin Fou, which means "silly rabbit" in French.This recipe originally appeared in the Food & Wine 2016 Cocktails book.
Mixologist Lindsay Nader improves on the Midori Sour, which can be cloyingly sweet. To cut some of the intensity of the melon liqueur, she adds Peruvian pisco—a clear brandy distilled from grapes—along with lemon and lime juice.
Although Peru claims to have invented pisco, here mixologist Lindsay Nader prefers to use the Chilean pisco Kappa, with its citrus and honeysuckle aromas. She dry-shakes the ingredients (without ice) to incorporate the sweetened condensed milk, then serves the drink over ice. Plus: More Great Cocktail Recipes
