Our Drink of the Week is the VSM 75 – Very Particular Monterey French 75

Written by admin

Beverage Director Aviram Turgeman is shaking issues up (actually talking) at Monterey. Along with the in depth Martini choice (served from a customized cart), his twist on the standard French 75 is a chunk of artwork.

For our Drink of the Week, there may be nothing extra festive than his VSM 75 in the case of a celebratory cocktail. Suppose seasonal fruit, an expensive spirit and Champagne! Mandarin peel infused Hennessy Cognac and Mandarin Syrup are shaken with lemon juice, strained, and topped with Champagne, served in a coupe glass garnished with citrus mud on the rim.

Preparation: On a Nick and Nora glass and make a pomegranate mud kiss on the facet of the glass. Add ice to shaker and shake vigorously 8-10 instances. Double pressure into glass. High with a recent Thienot Champagne Brut. Make a lemon peel and specific the oils contained in the cocktail then discard.

Behind the Cocktail: “Mandarins are scrumptious this time of 12 months, and we have a good time the entire fruit by infusing cognac with the peel, we prepare dinner a syrup with the pulp and leaves, then combine the grape primarily based spirit with Champagne after all. We end the drink with lemon oil for a lifting freshness, and eventually the citrus mud on the rim is a mix of dehydrated citrus peels with a contact of sugar and salt. It’s candy and bitter and bubbly on the identical time to set the temper for dinner and extra.” – Aviram Turgeman, Beverage Director.
