Inspiration: It's inspired in my culture first of all. Portugal it was a long time ago one of the most powerful nations in the world. We found other cultures, ingredients and we introduced them to the world. So we don't have historical connections with Mexico but we share the some food. So, I decided to create a gastronomic cocktail inspired in some mutual ingredients. Vinagrete, every Portuguese do at home to garnish their salads. Coriander, it's one of the most used ingredients of our kitchen. Turmeric, it's one of the ingredients that we brought from India and we presented to the world. I decided to use Port Wine Extra Dry because it's my time to share with the world something lovely from my country.
