The Poison Lips cocktail is a dangerous cocktail, persuasive, very aromatic and graceful on the palate, thanks to a deceptive drinkability. In reality, the alcohol content is quite high, but between freshness, pleasantness and fruity hints it tends to seem much lighter than it is, so be careful.
The cocktail ingredients are quite common: tequila, Sardinian Mirto, ginger syrup, lavender, lime and agave syrup. The true protagonist is the myrtle, the mythical Sardinian liqueur, which thanks to its aromatic and fleshy flavor manages to dye the cocktail with a Mediterranean touch.
As mentioned the alcohol content is quite high, so if you try it as an aperitif at most one, we say that it gives its best in the long-term after dinner.
