Learn how to make AC Hotel’s Flor de Bahia cocktail 


I recently had a drink named Flor de Bahia at the AC Hotel in Buckhead. It was excellent and had a unique flavor that I cannot pinpoint. Can you tell me the ingredients in the drink with a recipe to prepare it? Thanks. — Vicky Murphy, Atlanta

This cocktail from the AC Lounge at the newly opened AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead at Phipps Plaza is the creation of Chris Adams. It’s not a surprise that you might not be able to guess all the components as it relies on a wide range of spirits and guava juice.

If you want to duplicate the hotel’s presentation, dried pomegranate and a wide range of other dried fruits are available from http://nuts.com

This is the life cycle of a food trend: First, it starts bubbling up in cool boutique shops in New York or Los Angeles or San Francisco, and then every city in America has it. It goes mass-market, then there's a backlash, and then a backlash to the backlash, and eventually, if it's something truly enduring, it ends up where froyo finds itself today...
