Our review:

Rich liquid Christmas pudding flavours of Pedro Jimenez laced with scotch whisky and balanced with subtle gentian and chocolate bitterness.


Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Elia Doro at Dry Martini Bar, Barcelona, Spain. Elia says, "When I first started to elaborate this cocktail I was thinking how to exalt the bitterness of the gentian, so I decided to make an appetizer, which is typical in my region of Italy and very popular in my city, Padua. As I am in Spain now I used Pedro Jimenez sherry wine as the sweet ingredient, that combined with the scotch will create a nice taste when you start drinking it, and then comes the taste of the Suze that leaves a really nice and soft bitterness."
