Imagine sipping on a cocktail that transports you to the bustling streets of Fuzhou, with its rich culinary heritage and aromatic flavors. Fujian Mist is a sophisticated concoction that pays homage to Fuzhounese cuisine, blending local ingredients with international spirits to create a truly unique and innovative drink. Glass: Coupe Glass Ingredients: - 1.5 oz Lychee-infused Gin (Infuse gin with fresh lychees for 24-48 hours) - 0.5 oz Oolong Tea Syrup (Brew a strong Oolong tea, mix with equal parts sugar while hot until dissolved, then cool) - 0.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice - 0.25 oz Fish Sauce (This might sound unconventional, but it adds a savory depth that complements the sweet and sour profile) - 3 drops of Sesame Oil - Egg White from one egg (for froth and texture) - Garnish: Edible Orchid and a Spritz of Lapsang Souchong Tea Smoke (for aroma and presentation) Instructions: 1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the lychee-infused gin, oolong tea syrup, fresh lime juice, fish sauce, and sesame oil. 2. Add the egg white to the shaker. Perform a dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds. This process helps to emulsify the egg white, creating a silky smooth texture. 3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake again vigorously until well-chilled. 4. Strain the mixture into a coupe glass through a fine mesh sieve to ensure a smooth texture. 5. Garnish with an edible orchid placed delicately on the frothy top. 6. Lastly, to add an aromatic dimension that ties back to Fuzhou's tea culture, lightly spritz the surface with smoke from Lapsang Souchong tea using a smoking gun. This step infuses the drink with a subtle smoky fragrance reminiscent of the tea fields in Fujian. Fujian Mist is more than just a cocktail; it's an experience that blends the savory, sweet, and smoky elements of Fuzhounese cuisine into a refreshing and sophisticated drink. Perfect for those looking to explore the flavors of Fujian in a glass.
