Mixology Monday Mixology Monday’s can really bring out the inner mad scientist in us and allows us to have fun and create some great drinks! Thank you, Stacy from the Stacy Markow blog for flying high with us this month and providing a topic which is the SMASH!

SMASHing Good Drink!

The Silk Road


1. 4 slivers of pear
2. 5 shiso leaves
3. .50 oz simple syrup
4. 6 drops of Rooibos Chai Tincture
5. 2.0 oz of brandy (Cognac)


Muddle the pears, then lightly tear and muddle the Shiso leaves. Add remaining ingredients and shake with ice to chill and dilute. Fine strain into a brandy snifter and top with crushed ice.

Garnish with a pear that has been cut into a rectangle and wrap in a trimmed shiso leaf.


I can’t wait to see what other scientists mixed up! What do you think about ours? Let us know in the comments!
