Blast from the past

When I was younger, my dad and I used to “liberate” nectarines from a tree in one of the houses from the “rich” neighborhood near our house.  I remember the incredibly unique flavor of that fruit, something altogether different from oranges, peaches, or apricots.  At Proof this weekend, I found the spirit version of that sweet-tart flavor in the nectarine liqueur from Salish Sea Organic Liqueurs (I really love their logo as well).  I decided to use this in an Angel Face (from the Savoy Cocktail Book) variant.  The drink is deceptively sweet, but it definitely packs a punch. I think I’d tweak it more in favor of the liqueur just to get even more of that great nectarine flavor.
