101 Best New Cocktails: Seventh Art by Andrew Bennett, The Classroom, Perth, Australia
Andrew Bennett, The Classroom, Perth, Australia
“The drink is inspired by my love of cinema and how a great movie experience can be a work of art. The drink is built on the DNA of a sour, but aims to fast-track the experience of fat-washing. Here the umami flavours of butter and salt are leached from the popcorn instantaneously and experienced in cocktail form.” Andrew Bennett
50 ml (1.7 oz) Bacardi Superior rum
10 ml (.33 oz) yellow Chartreuse
20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice
15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup (1:1)
1 lemon twist, as garnish
Lightly muddle the popcorn in the bottom of a shaker. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake hard and double-strain into a chilled coupe. www.fulmira.com Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Muddled, buttered popcorn, indeed. How very dare he? Well, it turns out that Andrew Bennett is a brave soul, and his lack of fear benefits us all—this is a fabulous drink!
