Solbeso Sour

Unlike any spirit you've tried before, Solbeso is not tequila, not vodka, not rum and not moonshine - yet it kinda tastes like a mix of all of them. It's distilled from the fruit of the cacao, yes the same cacao that chocolate comes from, and just recently launched in our market. 

It's unique flavor makes it a blast for making cocktails, and we've been trying it in all kinds of stuff. (It makes a killer margarita)

But we can't help but think about that chocolate history. Even though chocolate is actually made from the seeds of the cacao fruit, something about Solbeso just begs to be paired with the same flavors that compliment chocolate - orange, mint, almond, etc. 

For this one, we're using a touch of amaretto liqueur, a little fresh lemon and lime and just a bit of sugar in the form of simple syrup. Trust us, you'll love it!
