The March Rain Cocktail is something I created one rainy evening in March, hence the name. I started with sweet liqueurs – Tia Maria and Canton Ginger Liqueur – and then came the Fernet Branca bitters. And more.
The Elderflower Martini takes your standard martini recipe and adds touches of St. Germain’s elderflower liqueur and lime. The citrus and herb notes of the traditional martini are rounded out by the light sweetness of the elderflower.
The Berimbau cocktail is another original from Favela Cubana in Greenwich Village. It features Velho Barreiro Cachaça, one of the few cachaças exported from Brazil. It has a sweet, earthy, fruity taste.
