The world of cocktails is today as full of possibilities with the goal of finding new combinations, or ‘reinvent’ the classics.
The latter is precisely an interesting proposal with a look back at some of the most legendary combinations, reinventing them and giving them a ‘Spanish’ touch with two popular distillates: Brandy and Anís. The result? These two appetizing examples of ‘Spanish’ cocktails.
‘Spanis Old Fashioned’
The cocktail ‘Spanish Old Fashioned’ is inspired by traditional drink ‘Old Fashioned’. In this case boldly combined with essence of citrus. The effect achieved is to wrap the palate on a journey to the authentic taste of Brandy but with contemporary spark that adds freshness of orange.
1 lump of brown sugar
5 or 6 drops of angostura
1 dash of soda
This cocktail is inspired by the traditional ‘Margarita’ and it is a surprising mix of anise, a dose of citrus and a touch of chocolate. There are many stories about the origin of this cocktail but they said that a waiter Tijuana created after becoming fascinated by the beauty of a young dancer named Margarita Carmen Cansino, who later became one of the most famous actresses in Holywood, Rita Hayworth.
5cl dry anise
5cl Sour Mix (Natural lemon + sugar)
