The African Queen

We’re celebrating Monday in style! Our cocktail of the month is ‘The African Queen’, an elegant and powerful martini inspired by the movie with Katharine Hepburn (as Rose Sayer) and Humphrey Bogart (as Charlie Allnut) stuck on a boat navigating the Ulanga River.

Created by Alexandra Purcaru for our bartender competition this year, this winning recipe has the elegance & determination of Rose with the rough adventurous spirit of Charlie.

To make it at home, you’ll need:

50 ml Elephant London Dry Gin
22,5 ml Vermouth DOLIN Dry
8 ml Mezcal Barra Alipus Sn Andrés
8 ml Pino Mugo
2 dashes Scrappy’s Bitters orange

Stir and strain, garnish with fresh pine buds
