David Rios’ take on the holiday tipple.
WHEN the man named the best bartender in the world mixes drinks for the holidays, you can bet they go beyond vodka tonics.
With holiday parties filling up itineraries and people’s homes, Spaniard David Rios of The Jigger Cocktail & Disco Bar in Bilbao offers cocktail recipe ideas to set the tone and whet guests’ appetites.
This past summer, Rios rose above 43 finalists from around the world to be crowned the World Class Bartender of the Year 2013.
Here’s Rios’ take on the classic eggnog.
The ‘Wake Me Up’ Eggnog
15ml single cream
10ml cinnamon syrup
1 whole egg
2 dash chocolate bitters
Place the cream, egg and cinnamon syrup in a medium pan and heat gently, without boiling, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
To serve, pour a measure of Zacapa into a glass and pour the egg nog over. Dust with cinnamon powder and two dashes of chocolate bitters.
The eggnog can be chilled at this stage or served hot. – AFP Relaxnews
