Recently we reached out to our friend Kaho who creates amazing cocktail recipes and shares his food journey through the Bay Area's restaurant scene on his two Instagram accounts @Kahosbar & @Kahobytes.
While he has mastered countless cocktails, using Purely was the first time that Kaho used a shrub in a drink. He said, that tasting the Pineapple Thai Chili Flavor and our Ginger Lime Flavor inspired him to craft a tropical drink. Since he has just watched the movie Crazy Rich Asians, Kaho developed a sophisticated and exotic drink - he fittingly named it " Crazy Rich Sling".
