So good to see you again. Last weeks cocktail was a little too mainstream for me. So this week, we are going a bit over the border; to South-America! There they make different sweets and desserts with the sweet potato… and there is where I found my inspiration for this weeks cocktail.
Sounds weird like a lot of other stuff we’ve made, but if you’ve been following for a while you’ll know it will taste amazing. It’s all about unusual combinations; the creation of a great piece through the unexpected collaboration of very different and unlikely parts like Jay-Z with Linkin Park.
What you will need:
- Sweet potato
- Ripe mango
- White sugar
- Soy sauce
- Black pepper
- All spice
- Pineapple juice
- Sage leaves
- Lemon juice
- Dumante liqueur
It’s a long list, but we will use most of it to create the puree you will use in the cocktail.
Peel the sweet potato and cook until soft.
In a blender or food processor, put:
- 3 oz. of ripe mango (peeled)
- 2 oz. of cooked sweet potato
- 4 oz. of white sugar
- 1 table spoon of all spice( or to taste)
- 0.25 spoon ground black pepper
- And just a dash of soy sauce
Blend until smooth.
Prepare the glass and garnish.
If you have an atomizer, it’s time to use it, spritz a coupe glass with Dumante liqueur. If you don’t have an atomizer just rinse the glass.
Garnish- Cut a mango wedge in the back so you can place it on the glass, and cut almost to the end 3 cuts in the mango wedge, smack 3 sage leaves and place them in the cuts, if you are too lazy, garnish just with the smacked sage leaves.
Let’s shake it - In a shaker put:
- 3 spoons from the puree
- 2 oz of gin
- 1 oz of pineapple juice
- 0.75 oz of lemon juice
Shake with ice until cold.
Double strain into the glass.
Place the garnish.
Finish with another spritz of Dumante liqueur.
I know it’s a bit of a hassle to handle with all the pre-making, but once you try it you will say it was worth it.
