The bar at Gustav’s is not a place for terribly creative drinks but their standing menu has some very tasty items on it. One of those that struck a chord with our party was the Love for Sale.
Firmly on the citrus end of the drink spectrum this one throws around a lot of fruit juices and not a lot of liquor. The Absolute Mandarin is a firm base which unsurprisingly pairs well with orange juice. I’m a big fan of passion fruit juice and the liqueur they use here gives a wonderfully round flavor. You need the sugar rim as there is a bit of bitterness in the drink, but all together the wonderful beverage brings up tiki memories and punch ideas.
I think a dash of Oregeat syrup and a tall Tiki glass and you’d think you were at Trader Vic’s instead of a German restaurant.
We ordered at least three around the table and I think everyone had to taste it at least twice.
