From my menu at The Donovan Bar at Brown’s Hotel in London’s Mayfair.
For whisky lovers, a twist on the classic Manhattan. Enjoy rich and earthy flavours from the whisky complimented by the sweet taste of the Ratafia Liqueur, bitter taste of the Guinness and a touch of saltiness from the oyster leaf.
- 50ml 12 year old Malt Whisky
- 25ml Evangalista Ratafia Liqueur ( Italian black cherry liqueur )
- 2 drops Salvatore’s Bitters or Fee Brothers whisky barrel aged Bitters
- Guinness Foam
- dried oyster leaf garnish
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice, stir well to chill and strain into a coupe glass.
for the Guinness Air:
- 200ml Guinness
- 1tsp soy lecithin
in a bowl mix the ingredients with a hand blender until it creates a foam, this is your Guinness Air.
Gently scoop up the air and place on top of the drink, garnish with a pinch of ground oyster leaf.
