Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Santiago Michelis at Alcoholic Architecture, London, England. Santiago says, “My cocktail is inspired on a winner night in a cabin surrounded by snow, sitting in front of the fireplace and reading. The flavour and aromas that meet in this drink are the ones that can transport me there.”
