Natasha Otrakji from Pokito Brooklyn created this refreshing and easy dreaming-of-summer drink for a recent China Residencies event. This cocktail highlights Ming River baijiu’s bright and tropical notes. With the aroma of pineapple, the flavor hops from coconut to blackberry to grapefruit in a sweet fizzy swoop.
