Yes I finally managed to try a quarantini – I based mine on the vesper martini we made a Lee Ho Fook, they actually use 2 different types of gin – 2 parts are beefeater and 1 part tanqueray.
Ingredients to make 1 drink
45 grams gin
15 grams vodka
15 grams rose’ vermouth (or regular vermouth if you can’t find rose’)
handful of ice
1 strip of lemon zest
Place your martini glass into the freezer while you make your drink you want it nice and cold.
Insert the butterfly whisk, weigh in the gin, vodka and vermouth add your ice and mix for 20 secs on reverse speed 3.
Remove your glass from the freezer and twist your lemon zest into a curl, place into the glass and pour the strained liquid into the glass.
Cheers!! Make sure you drink it with your friends for your virtual happy hour via facetime or messenger!!
Wow these crazy times we live in at the moment have seen some terrible things happen but also some inventive and amazing things too. So I love this idea that Chef Charlie Carrington and his team came up with to have Masterclasses with 3 recipes a week and each week will be a different country’s cuisine. If you are lucky enough to live in Melbourne you can order the box of ingredients for the week and then cook along at home while you watch the youtube masterclass or each of the nights Charlie does a live video on instagram where he cooks the recipe and answers any questions. If we can’t travel the world right now we may as well taste it in our own kitchens. I have been doing the DIY version and having to make up parts of the recipes myself as some of the ingredients boxes includes parts of the recipes already completed like the spice mixes, pickles or sauces. This really has been a delicious journey so far and I am definitely along for the culinary trip around the world with Charlie & his team. I’m so grateful to be able to join in and already have been introduced to some new recipes, ingredients and spices to make & taste.
