Cocktails that Converse with Cuisine
Lee Watson, veteran mixologist, takes cocktail crafting up a notch. His new range, featuring 7 drinks, each utilizing different flavors such as citrus juice, honey, and ginger, offering several refreshing options for guests to enjoy during their dining experience. Watson believes cocktails aren’t mere accompaniments, but vital components of the culinary experience.
According to Watson, the development of new cocktail recipes heavily relies on the food being served at the restaurant. By identifying specific ingredients and distinct flavors, a collection of cocktails that perfectly complements the taste of the meals can be created.
“Cocktails can complement food in more diverse ways than beer or a glass of wine,” said Watson. “A cocktail can stimulate appetite as an aperitif, complement a dish, cleanse the palate between dishes, or help settle your stomach as a digestif. It can do this with a broader selection of flavors and ingredients than typical alcoholic beverages. And cocktails are increasingly becoming more complex in ways which match the complexity and techniques of food.”
Beyond being mere beverages, these cocktails promise to elevate the overall Locavore experience, infusing a sense of adventure and curiosity into each meal. Locavore’s commitment to employing diverse flavors and combinations of alcoholic bases not only offers a distinctive dining opportunity for guests throughout the restaurant but also fosters a deeper appreciation for the artistry of mixology.
