HARVEST MOON

The Harvest Moon cocktail highlights the grassy, sugarcane, full-bodied and oily characteristics of Professional Edition D. I chose to work with Orgeat, an ingredient I don’t often use but in this drink it really amplifies the texture of D. The two herbal components in this drink are there to pay respect to Cuban’s unique terroir which was the inspiration for this edition.

BITCH MODE

Light, clean and refreshing floral highball blending green grass, sugarcane, green mandarin and apple skin with aguardiente and sweet, metallic, honeyed scent of neroli
