Picasso Sour

Sean Halse, Gold on 27, Dubai, UAE

“I wanted the drink to represent the artistic side of the modern bartender and used Picasso as my muse. Picasso also being famous for being a big absinthe drinker made the whole concept work, which is why I garnished with ‘The Absinthe Drinker’ painting by him. The signature stencil on top represents Picasso signing his bills with his signature as he started to get famous.” Sean Halse

Picaso Sour 50040 ml (1.35 oz) Kappa pisco

15 ml (.5 oz) orange curaçao

30 ml (1 oz) fresh lemon juice

20 ml (.66 oz) egg white

10 ml (.33 oz) sugar

3 dashes Absinthe

Angostura bitters, as garnish

Dry-shake, then add ice and shake again. Strain into a chilled coupe. Use a stencil, if you like, to add the garnish.

gaz sez:  I really really really love this drink. The balance is pretty incredible, the simplicity puts it into a classic category, and oh, it’s a very moor-ish potion.
