20 ml of each
-vermouth red Winestillery
-ama_te’ Matcha bio ice tea
2-3 Umami bitter drops
Orange essential oil
Glass: Japanese cup
Garnish: fresh wakame seaweed and orange julienne
Make the cocktail using the build technique, so directly into where you will serve the cocktail, in this case, a Japanese cup.
Place a single large cube of ice (known as a big rock), then pour in the drops of Umami bitter, which are the main three ingredients.
Round off with the ama_te’ Matcha bio ice tea and blend elegantly for 7-8 seconds with a bar spoon before adding drops of orange essential oil.
Finish by placing fresh Wakame seaweed and orange julienne on typical oriental chopsticks.
The drink Il conte va a Kyoto is one of three recipes dedicated to Japan by the bartender.
Elena Palmerini, F&B Digital Creator and Tuscan consultant, have unified Italy and Japan in an elegant osmotic process.
As a result, the combination of her love for the Rising Sun merge with the Italian classic, the Negroni.
Specifically, it is one of the most popular beverages in the world, this iconic drink started in Florence in 1919.
A long time ago, Count Camillo Negroni created it forthwith his return to Florence from one of his many trips.
Then he proposed it to the café via de’ Tornabuoni that he usually frequented, an American-style cocktail.
Thus was born Negroni and the recipe of one-third gin, one-third Campari, and one-third red vermouth.
Elena Palmerini’s twist on the classic has shōchū, the typical Japanese brandy, instead of gin.
Equally, she keeps in the recipe the always elegant Campari, synonymous with taste and internationality and using as red vermouth the Winestillery, a product of Chianti.
To emphasize the Japanese feeling drops of Umami bitter and the use of brown wakame seaweed.
While to bring back the Japanese taste, even if coming from Italy, here is the use of ama_te’ Matcha bio ice tea.
