We’ve never talked about politics, this website is not a competent place, but when the subject is Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate, more than politics is anthropology and phenomenology of the grotesque.
The Trump’s Golden Cowlick is a cocktail that flows as naturally as the wonder that pervades us every day on hearing of the heroic deeds of the blond warrior who thunders from the stage and calls for apocalyptic resolutions.
But what is surprising is not his passion: is the impassivity of his synthetic forelock.
Apart from the character, Trump’s Golden Cowlick cocktail is a serious drink, indeed very serious, very pleasant, with aromatic composure and ease of preparation.
As ingredients, we have Prosecco, cider and a shot of gin, with a couple of drops of Chartreuse to embellish the drink with lovely notes of anise, licorice, and alpine herbs.
If you spare some time, you could take 4 blueberries and put them in infusion into 4 cl of Chartreuse and then freeze them. In this way, you’ll have practical and tasty ice cubes to eat without risking watering down the cocktail.
When should you drink Trump’s Golden Cowlick? It is a very easy-going, sparkling cocktail, but pungent, perfect as an afternoon-evening aperitif, but also excellent as a party or brunch drink like Mimosa & Bellini.
