This is low ABV cocktail “The Winter Of Our Content” by Toby Maloney. It uses Licor 43, a Spanish vanilla and herb liqueur that we are trying for the first time in a cocktail.
And what's the reason? Well, we recently spent a few days of vacation in Spain, and at the airport on our way home there was a massive campaign for Licor 43. Wanting to bring something Spanish back home to Sweden, a bottle of this local liqueur felt like a clever buy.
Now there's not a lot of Licor 43 in the cocktail, but you can definitely still taste it. The cocktail is refreshing, slightly sweet but also sour thanks to that lemon juice.
The flags and the apples used as garnish we also bought in Spain. They felt very appropriate for this cocktail which also contains Cava.
The Winter Of Our Content
0,75 oz apple brandy
0,75 oz lemon juice
0,5 oz maple syrup
0,25 oz Licor 43
2 dashes Angostura bitters
sparkling wine (we used Cava)
Shake all ingredients but the sparkling wine with ice and fine strain into a flute glass. Top up with the sparkling wine and express an orange twist over the cocktail.
