🍸Love that faded🍸
Narcissus was a man of impeccable beauty. Son of the Nymph Lirope and the river God Cephissus. One day he was walking in the woods when Echo, an Oread (nymph of the forest) saw him and immediately fell in love with him. But he rejected her telling her to leave. She was devastated by the rejection and never stopped calling him until her voiced echoed away. Nemesis, the goddess of revenge, decided to punish Narcissus. So she lured him to the river and when he saw his reflection he fell in love with it. When he realised that his love could not be reciprocated he was devasted as well and commited suicide.
We decided to give a twist to the classic Champagne cocktail ( #spiceupyourclassics)
by switching cognac with gin and replace the classic angostura bitters to the bitter orange ones...just cause.
Also, do you have a myth that you would like us to check us out? Or do you have one that you heard and got stuck in your head? Let us know! 😄
Love that faded:
🔹20ml gin (as always we used @beefeatergin
🔹1 sugar cube
🔹4 dashes of orange bitters ( @angosturahouse
🔹Champagne to top up
In a flute add the sugar and the bitters and stir. Add the gin and top up with champagne. Lightly stir and add a little cherry on the bottom. Our's was steepped in anise syrup because we had some from another cocktail.
