Inspired by a tradition where a grape is eaten on each bell strike at midnight on New Year’s Eve in Spain, Las Doce Uvas de la Suerte Efervescencia is a delicious grape-based sparkling cocktail from Portobello ginthat will (hopefully) encourage a year of prosperity. Served in the traditional Spanish ‘Copa’ glass, grab a red wine glass for a serve that showcases the fortuitous grapes.
Glass | Fishbowl/copa glass
Garnish | Twelve frozen grapes
37.5mls Portobello Road gin
18.75mls dessert Wine
50mls freshly pressed grape juice
Dash of soda water
Twelve frozen grapes
In a cocktail shaker mix all the ingredients except the soda water and the grapes – being sure to add the egg white and the four ice cubes last.
Shake hard for a good 45 seconds.
Place the twelve frozen grapes and pour in a little of the soda – but only a dash – and slowly strain the contents of the shaker into the glass. Then finally top with more soda.
You should have a thick, creamy foam on top of the drink. Enjoy!
