There is one thing that I was very interested in portraying with this particular drink, and that was to show the diversity of MIDORI.
Although a melon liqueur, I was very keen in seeing what could be created by incorporating ingredients that would transform the base flavour.
So I turned to mixing with aged rum that would bring the richer characteristics of caramel and toffee to the mix, then another ingredient that would contribute a certain freshness and vibrancy.
So after some trials I fell upon Ruby Red Grapefruit juice, which although a citrus, does have some faint sweeter tones that balance with the sour and bitterness that are an intrinsic factor of this particular juice.
When put together and served in a tall glass I found that, indeed a new flavour had been created with these ingredients, something that had no correlation to it’s parts but the some of all parts.
And that flavour was fresh peach, so this is why I decided to call this drink the Peach Fuzz.
Ingredients - Pomidori - (1 glass)
|Top with Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice|
|Any other ingredients (eg. ice cubes) are not included in the alcoholic content listed.|
Mixing Instruction - Pomidori -
- Pour ingredients over ice into a glass, and gently stir.
- Garnish with fresh peach slices.
- With any tall simple drink, it is a good idea to leave room at the top for stirring then top with some fresh ice so the drink has an attractive look.
