Seventh Art

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

Seventh Art1 handful buttered popcorn

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!
