Review:

Savoury and spicy, this is an aperitivo cocktail, that is unless you need a chili-spiced kick-start to your day over breakfast – in which case perhaps rename this Wakey Wakey. Its enlivening spice has a curry-like appeal that makes this cocktail difficult to stop sipping on.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in September 2022 by Juan Jose Orellano Peñalver, a bartender at The Savoy Hotel in London, England. Juan Jose says, he took "inspiration from the Bamboo cocktail, my roots from South of Spain and my travelling time in Asia."
