it's the 3rd year of @courvoisier.uk
's global cocktail competition and this year they're celebrating parisian coffee & café culture...so i had to enter! ☕️+🍸🙌
my friends at @31dover
kindly supported me with some of the wonderful courvoisier vsop & the incredible team behind @jingtea
sent some of their exquisite teaware.
lastly i collaborated with @rootandbranchcoffee
to select the perfect coffee to pair with the vsop, matching and complimenting flavour notes between the two liquids. their 'saints & scholars no.3 blend' was the winner, with notes of orange, milk chocolate, almond, caramel and cherry...and it also happens to be on the brew bar of @cafeloustic
as you can see, i've chosen to blur the boundaries between barista & bartending techniques & tools in the creation of the drink, infusing the base ingredients directly with the grounds through a ceramic dripper. the addition of the milk pour simulates the café experience while lending a gentle milk wash to the drink. the milk splits due to the citrus with the whey passing through the filter adding a creamier texture & leaving the curds above with the ground.
entries have been open since january but i chose to enter yesterday (tomorrow is the deadline). only now do i realise there's also a public voting element 😂 so if you like the look of this please hit the link in my profile and vote me up. merci et santé!
