Inspiration and recipe will follow:
Après quelques brainstorms et beaucoup de tests, j’ai enfin le plaisir de vous présenter mon inscription au Bombay #mostimaginativebartender #mib2018 merci à tout le monde pour le support! J’ai bien hâte de monter à mtl et passer la journée avec tout ce beau monde! 🤗🥡 Since my first trip in south-east Asia, I was so inspired by the flavors and the experience that I decided to open ''Chez Tao!'' , my first restaurant bar in Quebec city.
But other than the flavors and the memories I recall from my trip was the great amount of pollution that was happening in those countries.
When I used to be just a bartender, I didn't have that much to say about the bar program and the eco responsibility of the establishment.
But now as I have opened my own successful bar, I have more power to change the world around me, to make it better.
At Chez Tao! we use metal straws, wooden coasters and instead of napkins we have cloths that we reuse instead of throwing them away.
We try to be as sustainable as possible. This is why in this cocktail, I add great responsibility with the elixir (cucumber marinade as a sour agent) and existing ingredients from the kitchen (thai basil, coriander, coconut oil, cucumber). I also blacken the limes that don't look good enough for garnish Let's make the world a better place one sip at a time! Because with great power comes great responsibility!
Great power recipe:
In a shaker tin, add 2 leaves of coriander and 3 leaves of thaï basil. Add liquid nitrogen and muddle to a powder.
Add 1.5oz Bombay Sapphire (fat washed with coconut oil) and let thaw. Add 0.75 st germain liqueur 0.33 yellow chartreuse, 0.75oz Cucumber marinade (Great responsibility elixir)& Miraculous foamer.
Fill shaker with ice, shake and fine strain in a chilled coupe.
Garnish: Cucumber roll, thaï basil flower & grated Blackened lime.
