Cocktails with VSOP
Last month, I attended Remy Martin Cocktail Master Class with Cellar Master Pierrette Trichet and Mixologist Anthony Zhong of Jigger & Pony.
Jigger and Pony is along Amoy Street. What makes this bar special? They have a wide range of cocktails to choose from.
I have learnt how to mix 3 cocktails using VSOP and other liquor, Want to know the recipes? here you go:
- (Top Left) Sidecar: Mix VSOP + Cointreau + lemon juice. As for the portion, depends on how strong you want your liquor to be. It is a classic cocktail, originally from UK. Very refreshing, suitable for ladies.
- (Bottom Left) Kingship: Mix VSOP + Cointreau + Vermouth , on a card top with cinnamon powder and torch it- helps to bring out the aroma, and drop the cinnamon powder into the liquor. It gives out a strong aroma and full body. Men will like it.
- (Right) Forgot the name of the this cocktail.. Cube sugar(Pre-soak in Maharaja) + VSOP + Piper Heidsieck Champagne.
It was served in champagne glass. It reminds people of celebration because of the champagne!
During this festive season, maybe you can use this recipe as reference and make your own cocktail for your guests. Cheers!
