RECIPE

Seriokai's Trail

MATTHEW KELLY / SUPERCALL

Jesse Carr of Balise in New Orleans was inspired to make this cocktail after he tasted the unusual blend of avocado and chocolate milk and, against all odds, liked it. A mix of an easy-to-make avocado-infused pisco, strawberry liqueur, honey, fresh lemon juice and crème de cacao, it’s a beautifully balanced drink, perfect for before or after dinner. The name “Seriokai’s Trail” comes from a Guyanese tale of a vengeful avocado farmer who followed a trail of avocados to his unfaithful wife at the end of the world. Maybe if she had just offered him this creamy, sweet drink as an apology, he would have been less bitter.
