Abdou El Asfor, Morocco: World Class, 2012

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Abdou El Asfor, 2012 finalist from Morocco, showed really well in our Cocktail Mastery challenge, despite being hindered by the lack of dry ice, something, he needed for his presentation.  Using exotic Moroccan spices, though, he fair dazzled Ueno-San and me with his innate sense of style, and a couple of beautiful cocktails.

Here’s a recipe for the drink that Abdou presented in the Retro-Chic challenge:

Man in Black

Glass: Coupette

Garnish: None

Method: Stirred and strained

20ml Johnnie Walker Gold Label

20ml Grand Marnier

20ml Espresso

20ml Chocolate syrup
