Kumquat Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Kumquat Fizz

Kumquats are in season now through April, and while they're at their peak a little longer, I'm stocking up to use them in everything from salads to marmalade. My current favorite application? In a cocktail.

To make this effervescent drink, muddle the kumquats to release their juices and aromatic oils. You'll find that the brightness from the citrus marries well with ginger syrup, which delivers a clean sweetness and another dimension of flavor.

Each sip is so pleasing that you'll be on your second glass before you know it! For the recipe, read ahead.
