To make a great cocktail, bartenders need good spirits, but above all, they need good mixers that are going to enhance their flavours.
In fine mixology, only ginger beers do this job.
Mixologists prefer Pimento because its chilli pepper really enhances the flavours of cocktails.
Moreover in a mix, the spirit slightly softens the kick of Pimento – the drink is still hot and “caliente”, but a little bit gentler on the palate.
In many countries, Pimento is often used to spice-up mocktails and cocktails. Most famous are Spicy & Stormy (from Dark ’n’ Stormy®), Hot Mule (from Moscow Mule), Mojito Pimento (replace the sparkling water with Pimento ), Hot Bomb (with a Kräuterlikör), Spicy Shandy (with a light lager), or Gin & Ginger, also called Italian Mule in Italy.
In a mocktail, the proportion will be the following: 1/3 Pimento, 2/3 fruit(s) juice.
