The Timur Nº3 cocktail by Alex Kratena: bourbon, kombucha and Paragon Cordial

An exceptional alliance between Monin and the expert mixologist Alex Kratena, creates a range of cordials born from an adventure. Find out more here and discover the Timur Nº3 cocktail.

Paragon is a unique range of cordial liqueurs created by Monin in collaboration with Alex Kratena. These liqueurs are the result of an experimental journey in the search for little known endemic botanical species from the four corners of the world. MONIN now offers these exceptional flavors to cocktail experts.

The project team has traveled to all continents to meet the communities, their culture and their ancestral customs in order to unearth these rare ingredients.

Three varieties make up this first collection dedicated to peppers and berries, presented in a 48.5 cl bottle: the white pepper from Cameroon, the Rue Bay from Ethiopia and the Timur Bay from Nepal.

We bring you a cocktail recipe by Alex Kratena based on the Timur Berry. This Nepalese pepper is picked from small trees from the Zanthoxylum armatum species, which grow in the wild in the Mahabharat range. With its fresh and citrus notes it is easy to see why some call it the grapefruit pepper.
