Its secret ingredient is the raspberry and Lillet Blanc reduction that recalls this perfect gentelman’s regular daily tipple – wild berry juice. We recommend sampling it in Le Sirenuse’s Champagne Bar, renamed ‘Aldo’s’ in June 2019 in tribute to the impeccably turned-out bon vivant.
- 36ml Jamaican rum and 24ml Cuban rum, blended together
- 20ml Reduction of raspberries and Lillet Blanc
- 15ml Orange Curaçao
- 5ml Elderflower syrup
- 20ml Lemon juice
The raspberry and Lillet Blanc reduction should be made at least a day before. Take a kilo of well-washed raspberries and 700cl of Lillet Blanc (a French wine-based aperitif based on Semillon with the addition of macerated citrus fruits and quinine). Pour both into a large saucepan with a kilo of unrefined white ‘panela’ cane sugar, bring to the boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for around 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Leave to cool, then pour through a fine sieve, bottle, and keep in the fridge.
Put a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and add, in order, the rum, orange Curaçao, lemon juice, elderflower syrup, and reduction of raspberries and Lillet Blanc. Shake vigorously. Pour from the shaker through a sieve into a Nick & Nora glass (this is known as double straining), and serve with a twist of lemon.
