EUPHORIA by Eunike Katherine – @eunikekatherine bartender at @hidden.club in Indonesia
Our first of our best summer cocktails this week is inspired by BTS, she shares with us this very unique drink, a mix of homemade recipes and Korean ingredients that will match perfectly with your favorite gin!
115ml Homemade Gwail gat-eun carbonated:
- Makgeolli Peach 60ml
- Gin 30ml
- Citrus 15ml
- Orange Neroli Sherbet 10ml
- Then give carbonation with soda syphon
30ml Creme De Coco white
Garnish: Choco Yuzu Jelly: For this garnish, first mix the jelly powder, sugar, yuzu juice, and water then cook it until boiling. Then, chill the jelly.
Next, melt the chocolate (using white chocolate compound).
The last step is to coat the jelly with white chocolate and garnish it with an edible gold leaf at the top and freeze it.
BLUEBERRY FIELD – Nicolas Pérez Cortez – @nicolasperezcortez
The Bluberry Field cocktail is another one of our best summer cocktails of the week. It’s a bit of a take on Dick Bradsells Bramble. The sweet, floral, citric & piney taste comes together with the berries but from a different angle. The roundness of the gin allows for the other ingredients to balance each other’s levels of acidity and sweetness.
“When I was a child I used to go once a year to Pinamar, a place to the south of Buenos Aires, a beach area, where there are lots of lavender plantations. I’ve gone back a few times and each opportunity I have I bring back some fresh lavender from the coast. I make my own lavender bitter once a year, although there are really good ones in the market.”
Here’s the Bluberry Field, or as he personally recalls it “The One That Reminds Me Of Fields Of Berries On A Summer Afternoon”.
60 ml. London Dry Gin
15 ml. Blueberry shrub*
15 ml. Rosemary & lemon infused honey*
2 drops Lavender bitter
*Shrub: 200 gms. Blueberries + 200 gms. Apple Vinegar + 200 ams. Granulated white sugar + 100 ml. cup water + 2 cloves + anise star + 45 ml Tartaric acid 5% solution
In a casserole dissolve the sugar in the water. When it reaches boiling point, turn off and let cool. Add the syrup with the blueberries in a mason jar. Settle overnight.
Cook the syrup and berries in a saucepan in low fire with the anise and cloves, adding and stirring the vinegar. Cook for 30 minutes. Let cool. Strain through cloth, bottle, label and refrigerate.
*Honey: 500 grs. Liquid honey + 250 ml. Water + 2 gms. Fresh rosemary + Peels of 2 lemons + 2 slices Ginger.
Cook all the ingredients for 20 minutes in a casserole at 80°. Don’t stop stirring. Let cool. Strain through a cloth. Bottle, label and refrigerate.
Now, the preparation of the cocktail:
In a cocktail shaker add the gin, shrub and honey. Stir to integrate. Add lots of ice and shake for 15 seconds. Double strain on a chilled rocks glass with a big cube of ice. Garnish with blueberries and a tip of rosemary. Perfume with an orange peel. Enjoy!
