La Dolce Vita Strati is a sophisticated cocktail that encapsulates the delightful flavors of a classic Italian Rainbow cookie, also known as a tri-color or Venetian cookie, with a balanced profile leaning away from excessive sweetness. This cocktail combines the richness of almond, the brightness of citrus, and a hint of chocolate, wrapped in a veil of smooth spirits to pay homage to the beloved confection. Ingredients: - 1 oz Amaretto (Almond liqueur) - 1 oz Gin, preferably a dry style to cut through the sweetness - 1/2 oz Fresh lemon juice - 1/4 oz Maraschino liqueur - 1/4 oz Crème de Cacao (white) - 1/4 oz Heavy cream - 1 Egg white (for frothiness and texture) - A splash of Soda water - Garnish: Chocolate shavings and a maraschino cherry Instructions: 1. In a shaker, combine the Amaretto, gin, fresh lemon juice, Maraschino liqueur, Crème de Cacao, heavy cream, and egg white. 2. Perform a dry shake (no ice) for about 15 seconds to emulsify the egg white. 3. Add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously until well-chilled. 4. Double strain the mixture into a chilled coupe glass to achieve a smooth texture. 5. Carefully pour a splash of soda water to add a slight effervescence. 6. Garnish with a sprinkle of chocolate shavings over the frothy top and a single maraschino cherry on the rim. The La Dolce Vita Strati serves up a dance of almond and citrus notes, graced by hints of cherry and chocolate, while the cream provides a luscious mouthfeel—evoking the layered joy of Italian Rainbow cookies without tipping into cloying territory.
