On a recent trip to Houston, we made the wise decision of having lunch with a group of friends at Ka Sushi. Obviously, we sat at the bar and while we fully enjoyed the cuisine, it was cocktails on our minds and when we see a blue drink, we order a blue drink. The Nami cocktail combines the vanilla and spiced oak hints of Monkey Shoulders with the cinnamon herbal notes of Becherovka Czech liqueur and citrus of the blue curacao that balance with the creamy and silky texture of the coconut cream, Lime juice for acidity and Spirulina to obtain the beautiful Cyan blue color.
Created by Ellie Ramirez, Bartender & Service Manager at Ka Sushi, she shares about the Nami “I wanted to create a scotch “monkey shoulder” cocktail that women would appreciate. Most times scotch is overlooked as a “manly” spirit so with the Nami, I wanted to change that representation”
