"For this Ketel One challenge, I called for a talk to my bartender community to expand the sustainability network in my city. In this meeting, I invited our producers Fernando with her organic honey and Maria who has her agroecological farm.

This conveys the importance of knowing the path of our product from the beginning until it reaches the customer, if these products are treated correctly without harming the environment.

But also how to reuse ingredients generating a cocktail bar with 0 waste. That is why "Tourist in the city" was the example for them of how to do things differently at the bar and that these small actions lead us to a path of sustainability.

In this cocktail, we use the waste of our producers.

Part of the honey and air that remains to our beekeeper in the drums and leaves of Yacon (Earth apple) that after the harvest do not use them but with this, we make an infusion with fresh notes of green apple.

This cocktail is a highball based on Ketel One Vodka and a soda from the waste of honey and yacon leaves (Earth apple) highlights those notes of honey and freshness that this vodka has. 

Our decoration is a yacon leaf that transmits to us the principle of things, life, but also that things can be done differently.
