Created by Matteo Peneau, Le Purdey, Paris
40 ml Italicus
40 ml generous gin
15 ml safran sirup
10ml rose water iran
pink pepper tonic
1 drop home made bissap
Garnish with Parisian rose petal
The cocktails is a journey through different flavors from a french gin based on jasmin and elderflower, combined to my Iranian origins with a special rose water, a spicy note picked from the pink pepper tonic then finishing the journey with italicus within the citrus ans fresh tones allied to the flower bouquet.
The whole cocktail is about having different vibes just like the Purdey bar, based in Saint Germain des pres Paris, iconic place in the centre of Paris we have an eclectic neighbourhood, with a jazzy ambiance at aperitif time, leading to pop electro after 10pm, we can share a different type of dancing, drinking with sharing a unusual lifestyle for a cocktail bar.
