40 ml Laphroaig Triple Wood
30 ml Mancino Rosso Amaranto
10 ml Amarena Cherry Syrup
3 ml Leonardi Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
1 dash Miracle Mile Redeye Bitter
METODO DI ESECUZIONE
Combain all ingredients in to a mixing glass, and fill up with ice. Than I mix it with classic throwing technique. Strain into the chilled glass. Garnished with a roasted baguette, prosciutto, and amarena cherry. The reason why I have choosen this method, because I would have give this cocktail a little freshness.
A Tulipe cocktail glass- The slim and elegant shape reminds us a tulip which symbolises feminity.
People say that “woman with a strong character is always beautiful”.
My cocktail’s character is based on the Fabbri amarena cherry, and I would have liked to create something special with fruity and salty notes. That’s why my cocktail is based on one smokey iodic islay malt scotch whisky. The Laphroaig Triple Wood was finished three different cask. The last one is an oloroso sherry cask that gently eliminates all the remaining sharp edges. This kind of thing points out the sweet and deep almond flavours in the amarena, and with this salty marks makes it more intensive.
The other liquid what I used is an Italian vermouth, called Mancino Rosso Amaranto. This spirit is infused with thirty-eight botanicals -ten of which are used for Amaro-, and natural spirit on Trebbiano di Romagna wine base. This vermuth gives my drink the perfect balance. It guides us perfectly from the bitter notes to the sweet and fruity cherry ones.
I chose a cherry flavoured reduction for my new-born cocktail, what gives it a little sour notes and a kind of acidity, but set off the fruity notes. The cherry balsamic vinegar from Modena, the company was established in 1871. (which city is important in the amarena’s history as well.)
Last but not least, I put a drop of interesting bitter in it,which has been fat-washed with bacon fat, and filtered with espresso, and infused with tobaco substitute.
The silver inner painting in the glass and the blue based white intarsien pattern is almost perfectly the same as the pattern of the ceramic container- Of Course, the glass is just as exciting as the cocktail in it.
My aim was to show that the amarena cherry can't be only used in sweet drinks, but also it creates harmony among the bitter and salty flavours.
