40ml dr loosen Riesling wine
20ml water of Greek citrus (Greek kumquat, Greek lemon, lime, pink & yellow grapefruit)
Pickled onion shallot
My inspiration for this drink came from a theatrical and musical genre that was born in Italy. Adagio is the Italian word used by the conductor to play at a lower tempo.
Adagio is an aperitif that comes to satisfy with its special flavors and the most demanding receiver. It is ideally drunk at the end of the meal, at the end of the day when everything flows slowly, without stress and without obligations.
I tried to prepare an aperitif enriched with different stimuli based on what we are used to as Spritz Italicus, Dry wine, Greek citrus water and oxygen combined with an explosive pickled shallot onion!
