Metaxa – tomato – vermouth – orange – onion

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.
