Beauty & the Beast

Elegant meets rustic in this version of the classic tale

As the fairy tale goes the beautiful young woman Belle is taken prisoner by a Beast who in reality is a prince cursed to inhabit a hideous form reflecting his own previous cruelty. In the Disney version of the classic tale the curse is represented by an enchanted withering rose. By finding true love, despite his ugliness, the prince can break the curse, but only before the withering rose loses all its petals.

Enjoy the beautiful withering rose in the form of a light, elegant and floral cocktail served in a glass bell.

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
