Alex's recette de cocktail
For this recipe I used fresh raspberries,lemon peel infused vodka, a rosemary simple syrup, a dash of vanilla extract and a dash of saline solution. Shake all these ingredients over ice and double strain into a Burgundy glass with 1 large ice cube. Finally, top up with the beverage with star of the show, Mionetto Extra Dry Sparkling Rose. The Raspberries and citrus from the vodka add a wonderfully fresh aroma which then translates to the palette. The rosemary simple syrup not only provides the cocktail with a hint of sweetness, it also adds a very welcome herbacious note. The addition of the rose vermouth brings a delicate flavor of wild roses and summer berries to the drink and also adds body. The vanilla extract brings a welcomed dessert note while the saline elevates the citrus and berry notes.
Topping this shaken cocktail with Mionetto Extra Dry Rose brings a fantastic dryness while adding complexity and class. The strawberry, raspberry, and red grape fruit notes combine perfectly with the citrus vodka, Rose vermouth and rosemary. Delicious.
Qu'est-ce qui a inspiré la boisson?
I wanted to make an elevated Italian aperotivo. Perfect for those summer afternoons on the patio or a refreshing cocktail for to finish off an afternoon of cycling through Vinyards. After sampling Mionetto prosecco, Rose prosecco and the Extra Dry Rose, I knew what direction to take my cocktail. Using the extra dry would mean I could make a amazing summer Aperotivo by combining some intriguing flavors to elevate the fresh berry and flora notes of the Extra Dry without overpowering the sparking wine itself.
