Review:

I added egg white to the original recipe to ensure a foamy head to receive and hold the all-important bitters.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2021 by Aljosha Moretti at Le Lion Bar de Paris in Hamburg, Germany where it remains one of the bestselling cocktails. Originally based on Rutte Sloe Gin.

Joerg Meyer, the man behind Le Lion Bar de Paris gave us some background information; "A German bartender, Klaus Stephan Rainer from Goldene Bar in Munich, created a "aromatic style" Cocktail Bitter, called Sexy Bitters. I asked Team Le Lion in 2019 to create drinks, featuring this Cocktail Bitters, cause we liked to support our local "underground".

Aljosha Moretti came up with the Sloe & Sexy- a sloe gin and champagne drink featuring Sexy Bitters. And I knew from the second that this creation will become a banger. Champagne cocktail, cool name, accessible and charming taste. So we put it on the menu. If you do not have Sexy Bitters at hand (quite German product) - Change to and Aromatic Bitters. Sey Bitters has a hint of Cinnamon and Tonka Bean shining true.
