Ciclo Di Tempo
40 ml Italicus
20 ml olive oil fatwashed vodka infused with orange flowers
30 ml rotovaped white chocolate water
15 ml citric acid infused with bergamot oil (sfumantura)
30 ml fermented clarified white chocolate
Dimitris says, "The time cycle refers to a continuous journey in time woven either forward or backward. This trip composes a wonderful mosaic of modern and traditional techniques, classic and futuristic flavors and aromas. Just like the Italicus time cycle. The drink of the kings in 1850 and the number one trending brand in 2020. In this cocktail are used classic (bergamot) but also modern aromas (white chocolate), traditional (sfumatura like italicus) and modern techniques (rotary evaporation)."
