Martini de Minas Raul Faria

“My goal was to utilize cachaça in a different way. I tried to utilize the salt and lime oil to balance the sweetness of the Licor 43 that I was using to elevate the vanilla notes I get from cachaça while at the same time keeping a dryer, diner time cocktail profile.  Saude!” Raul Faria

60 ml (2 oz) Leblon CachaçaMartini de Minas

15 ml (.5 oz) Licor 43

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Dolin Dry Vermouth

3 dashes Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6

pinch of sea salt

1 lime twist

1 lime-peel spiral, as garnish

Stir over ice, then add lime oils from the twist, and discard the twist.  Strain into  a chilled cocktail glass, and add the garnish.

gaz sez:   This is one very weird mother of a drink, but it works very nicely, indeed.  Hope that Raul’s boss appreciates what a great bartender he has on board . . .
