1,5 cl of Biancosarti liqueur
1 cl of strawberry syrup
6 cl of beer
The Kojak cocktail is a blast from the past: the legendary hairless detective was a myth for many of us born in the 70s and then dedicating a cocktail to him was the least we could do.
We wanted to make an elegant, but rocky, velvety cocktail. Fresh, aromatic, but virile, caressing, but at the same time grotesque, so we uncorked a beer to complete our aperitif. A light beer, Weiss or Pils, or a not too aggressive IPA, but skip sweet and malted beers.
The ingredients for making the Kojak cocktail: strawberries and Biancosarti, a rude bitter that knows how to add a balsamic touch with herbs and various “barks”. And then vodka for the alcoholic thickness (and the placid lack of flavors) and we close with a splash of beer to add bubbles and bitter touch.
Let’s face it, the Kojak cocktail wants to compete with the Spritz, or rather wants to scrape it. It is a sweet and bitter aperitif, very drinkable, elegant, but above all ready for a deadly fight.
The alcohol content is not very demanding, but its taste is phantasmagoric, give it a chance and it will become your new favorite sparkling aperitif.
