Instructions

The Tempest Serenade is a cocktail that captures the essence of a storm at sea, with layers of flavor that give a sense of the tumultuous weather and the deep, mysterious ocean. This drink is a blend of dark and light spirits, herbal notes, and a touch of effervescence, symbolizing the chaotic mix of wind, water, and thunderous skies. Ingredients: - 2 oz Navy-strength gin (representing the strength of the ocean) - 1/2 oz Dark rum (adding a hint of the ominous storm clouds) - 1/4 oz Blue curaçao (to give a hue of the deep sea) - 1/2 oz Fresh lime juice (the sharpness mirroring the lightning) - 1/2 oz Simple syrup (to balance the acidity) - 3 dashes of orange bitters (for complexity) - 1/2 oz Islay single malt Scotch whisky (to give a smoky finish, like the calm after the storm) - 1 egg white (for frothiness, like the sea foam) - Splash of ginger beer (for a fizzy element, like the ocean spray) - Edible glitter (optional, for a shimmering effect like sunlight piercing through storm clouds) - Garnish: A lime wheel and a sprig of rosemary (to represent peace after the storm) Instructions: 1. In a shaker, combine the gin, dark rum, blue curaçao, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, and orange bitters. 2. Add the egg white to the mix and dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds to emulsify the egg white. 3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake again until well chilled. 4. Strain the mixture into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. 5. Carefully float the Islay Scotch on top by pouring it over the back of a spoon. 6. Top with a splash of ginger beer for effervescence. 7. If using, add a pinch of edible glitter over the drink for a mesmerizing effect. 8. Garnish with a lime wheel and a sprig of rosemary. 9. Serve with a straw and instruct the drinker to stir before sipping, to merge the flavors resembling the swirling of a storm. The Tempest Serenade should be served in a highball glass, which allows the layers of the drink to be displayed beautifully and offers ample space for the garnishes. The combination of the spirits and the fizz from the ginger beer makes for a complex taste sensation while the smoky note from the Scotch whisky adds the final touch of a storm passing over the ocean, making the Tempest Serenade a cocktail to remember.
