2 cl of apple juice
2 drops of absinthe
1 sprig of marjoram
The cocktail we are going to serve you today is a delicate symphony of fruity scents, a classic sparkling drink, simple and immediate, not very alcoholic, perfect as an aperitif, just to whet your appetite and spread joy and abandon like there’s no tomorrow.
We called it Heidi cocktail, because it’s delicate, a nice thin glass, looking sunny and innocent, just like the sweet maiden who lived in the mountains.
But beware, our dear Heidi looks angelic, but she is an Iron Lady, in fact, the recipe of this cocktail is not so light on alcohol: requires a pink wine as a base, a drop of gin, apple juice and cranberry and we end up with a few drops of absinthe. If you want to try a sprig of marjoram, it gives a lot of aromatic appeal to the cocktail.
The result is an excellent pre-dinner cocktail, we could put it in the same category of big ones like Mimosa, Kir Royal, Rossini and Bellini, so keep that recipe in mind if you have to plan a brunch, a swimming pool party or stylish fish dinners.
But enough talking, let’s go to the recipe of our new cocktail, welcome Heidi.
