At Vine & Table, our commitment to cocktail quality doesn’t stop at the spirit aisle, as we believe that mixers are just as, if not more, important than the base. When three quarters of your drink is soda, why not make it the best available? This commitment to cocktail excellence, coupled with our relentless search for new and unusual flavors, brings you Serrano Pepper Soda from DRY Sodas.
This slightly spicy sparkling soda features just a touch of sweetness and full, round, earthy notes that actually reflect the flavor of the pepper, not just the heat.
While I’m sure the folks at DRY would imagine you drinking this soda straight, that’s something I can neither imagine nor recommend! This sprightly drink is just begging to be mixed. In fact, I took the liberty of trying it out with a healthy cross section of drinks (don’t judge, it’s research), and while it pairs the best with agave-based spirits, it does just as well with botanical gins and slightly sweet whiskeys. But I was most impressed with this mixed with the vanilla-forward Suerte Reposado Tequila. Just top 2 oz of Suerte with 5 oz of Serrano Pepper Soda, add ice and a quick squeeze of lime, and garnish, if you like, with a sprig of cilantro.
