Terra Cotta Warrior Smash!

PF Chang’s developed this fancy little cocktail to coincide with the Warriors’ arrival. It might be good enough to break the warriors out of the stone, but I’ll let you know after I have another. Its a difficult process deciding, but hey, someone has to do it!

What is a Smash you ask? A “Smash” is a classic cocktail which predates the Mojito, is actually a category of drink, and one of the very first. It consists of any kind of spirit, combined with lemon and mint. It’s that simple. There are whiskey smashes, brandy smashes, etc. The Terra Cotta Warrior Smash offers a luxurious twist on the classic in that it is made with cognac (not a brandy) and has the twist of Chinese 5-Spice. ENJOY!
