Odyssey Number Ten
Adapted from a recipe by Humberto Marques, 1105 Cocktail Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark
“In Homer’s Iliad, the horses of the Myrmidons graze on wild celery that grows in the marshes of Troy, and in Odyssey. Take an epic voyage to witness the pairing [of] flavors between the strawberries and the celery, along with the perfect gin to be mixed with the fresh and fruity tasting notes of Lillet Rouge,” Humberto Marques.
50 ml (1.7 oz) Tanqueray No. TEN gin
20 ml (.6 oz) Lillet Rouge
30 ml ( 1 oz) fresh lemon juice
3 fresh strawberries
20 ml (.7 oz) honey
1 celery leaf, as garnish
Muddle together thoroughly the celery and the strawberries, then add ice, and the remaining ingredients. Shake well and strain into a chilled wine glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Strawberries and celery? YES! Strawberries and Celery! This drink is nothing short of fabulous. Wee done (again), Humberto.
