By relying on the rich aromas of Metaxa, I’ve created this cocktail with tomato juice, vermouth and orange juice. What a discovery this fresh and balanced cocktail is! It was served at the Foodpairing® Masterclass on Mediterranean flavours in Greece hosted by bitterbooze.com.
Ingredients (for one cocktail)
- 50ml Metaxa 5
- 180ml fresh tomato juice
- 20ml dry vermouth La Quintinye flavoured with rosemary
- 30ml fresh orange juice
- 1/4 dry onion
Slightly crush the onion in a shaker with a pestle, add the remaining ingredients and “roll” with ice – moving all ingredients from one part of the shaker to the other by this rolling technique.
Kalamata olives, feta, dry onion, cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
Highball glass type
