Last weekend I was invited to work at a party, there would be only Japanese food and a lot of spirits for me to play with.
There was a 3L bottle of sake and a bottle of Rose syrup. So I decided to buy some apple flavored soy milk.
Soy milk and sake are some kind of “same culture pairing”.
Apple and roses are from the “same odor pairing“.
- 2½oz Sake
- 2oz Apple flavored soy milk
- ½oz Rose syrup
Shake and strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with an caramelized apple slice and some rose petals.
It was tasty and everybody loved it.
It is very light and is a nice piece that can benefit from improvements.
Maybe something with the Golden Ratio
- 1½oz Applejack
- ¾0z Sake
- ¼oz Rose syrup
Since we don’t have applejack here in Brazil, I’ll wait for someone to try this one out.
That’s my first attempt to make a non-obvious pairing in cocktail.
