Turn your backyard into the beach with your Toes in the Sand and a summer citrus whiskey sipper with flavors of pineapple, mandarin orange, whiskey, spiced liqueur and bitters. It’s a easy to shake up cocktail and easy to double if you’re mixing for two. If you’d prefer a batch of cocktails to prepare for a small group social distancing with you in the backyard this weekend read on for batching instructions.
** Pineapple syrup: cut up one small pineapple into small pieces and weigh. Weigh out the same amount of sugar and mix the two. Let sit out on a counter for 6-12 hours, or until the pineapple syrup fills up the bottom of the mixing cup. Strain and store in the fridge. If you add a splash of vodka it will keep for 3-4 weeks. Save the sweetened pineapple chunks to top an ice cream sundae or pancakes.
