101 Best New Cocktails: Loop by Andreas Sanidiotis, Lost + Found Drinkery, Nicosia, Cyprus
Andreas Sanidiotis, Lost + Found Drinkery, Nicosia, Cyprus
15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice
20 ml (.66 oz) Strawberry Oleo Saccharum*
3 basil leaves
2 dashes balsamic vinegar
3 dashes green Chartreuse
1 fresh basil sprig, as garnish
Shake over ice and fine-strain into a collins glass. Top with crushed ice and add the garnish.
*Strawberry Oleo Saccharum: Muddle 200 g (1 cup) caster or superfine sugar, 150 g (about 1 cup) fresh stemmed strawberries, and the peel from 1 lemon in a bowl. Cover and let it sit overnight, until sugar is dissolved.
gaz sez: There was something about the combination of Chartreuse and balsamic vinegar that made me need to test this drink, and it’s a pretty weird wedding, for sure, but it does work, and this drink is more than worthy of a place in this collection. And the strawberry oleo saccharum is pretty darned good, too!
