From the barrel Old fashioned style
Old fashioned vintage glass
Dried lime and orange
Pre-mix the drink inside a small French oak barrel previously impregnated with Pimiento Dram, for an additional spicy note. Build the cocktail like an old-fashioned classic that is poured straight from the barrel. Decorate with dehydrated lime and orange.
An old-fashioned drink with many spicy notes reminiscent of the Caribbean, starting with a syrupy dark rum loaded with vanilla notes, a very spicy bitter that recalls a traditional Jamaican preparation, the pimiento or “allspice”, rich in warm, intense aromas; the excellent structure of this drink is beautifully supported by the aromatic fullness of Elixir Veneziano, Negroni Antica Distilleria, 26% abv, a liqueur created with typical Venetian products: Raboso Piave wine with organic black cherry and plum juice, an infusion of Treviso Red Radicchio and a small percentage of Grappa. A sweet, long and enveloping finish brings out the notes of Coffee Liqueur, Negroni Antica Distilleria, 25% abv, made with the finest blends of Arabica beans, with intriguing toasted notes and hints of custard and caramel.
