2,5cl lemon juice
1 sprig rosemary
10 drops Arbequina olive oil macerated with rosemary and thyme.
Shake and double strain. Serve in medium high with a wide mouth. Garnish with sprig of rosemary inside the glass and 5 drops of essential olive oil.
Based on my own memories and adapting one of my favorite cocktails, the "Daiquiri", with a change of the service format.
It is based on aromas that I have grown up with, such as rosemary, and essential ingredients of the Mediterranean diet such as olive oil and lemon. And emphasizing the great product that is Italicus and the great wine recognized worldwide as Fino or "Sherry wine".
In short, a life in one drink! The sour balance of a daiquiri with the complexity and harmony of Italicus mixed with the fine and acid notes for a fresh aperitif to enjoy in all bars of the world.
