Marrakesh, Morocco: and a tale of a Moroccan cocktail recipe ( a new series!)

We take our Moroccan cocktails seriously at Peacock Pavilions.  When we have guests, a freshly made, craft cocktail is available every day at 5:00 (and we make sure that guests never get the same thing twice).  Over the years, we have amassed a repertoire of Marrakech-inspired cocktails, and there is always something new and delicious being stirred, muddled or shaken in the kitchen. Many of the ingredients come straight from our organic garden!

I truly believe that it's the little things, like the occasional cocktail, that make life feel like like a vacation.  So once a month for the next several months, I will be sharing a new Peacock Pavilions Moroccan cocktail recipe.  I would love for you to try them out and to post a pic on our Facebook page if you do.  Let's celebrate a Moroccan Summer all year round:-)

(Notes:  In the winter, omit the ice cubes and serve hot.  Also, I like my cocktails less sweet.  If you feel the same, go easy on the sugar syrup; start with a cup and taste.  I often top up with some water when the pot is simmering on the stove, so that I can enjoy 2 or 3 glasses guilt-free.  And check out the way we have snipped a glossy fruit leaf from the garden and pinned with a short tooth pick, for an extra decorative touch.)
