Pisco Fever Danny Parlin - Copy

“This is a very potable drink, easy on the eyes and pleasing to the palate. Spiritually balanced! Perfect for Spring, Summertime or enjoyed year round,” Danny Parlin.

2 slices cucumber

30 ml (1 oz) Pisco Capel Reservado or equivalentPisco Fever - Copy

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Aperol

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Amaro Nonino

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice

22.5 ml (.75 oz) simple syrup

1 skinned cucumber spear wrapped in an orange twist, as garnish

Muddle the cucumber slices in a mixing glass; add ice and the remaining ingredients.  Shake well, and double strain into a chilled coupe.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez:  Danny Parlin is a true pain in the ass.  I requested pictures of the drink from him (he did really well, doncha think?), and when he sent them to me he added that he’d changed the recipe a little, so I had to re-test.  Well, he might be a pain in the ass, but his tweak worked, and resulted in a very unusual, light and flavorful, truly original Pisco cocktail.  Well done, Danny.
