Made in Douro Cocktail

From Chief Bartender David, Six Senses Douro Valley, Portugal

Ingredients:

  • 30 ml Ventozelo Gin
  • 30 ml Vista Alegre 10 Years White Port
  • 30 ml Homemade Cordial of Orange and Pepper Mint
  • 25 ml Homemade Rosemary Syrup
  • 30 ml Lemon Juice
  • 2 dash of homemade Orange Bitter
  • 1 Egg White
  • Decoration: Rosemary and Black Pepper

Ventozelo Gin is produced by Douro Valley’s Quinta de Ventozelo, which is also famous for its wines and Ports. Vista Alegre 10 Years White Port is also produced by a famous local wine company. The cordials are homemade using oranges and peppermint from our organic gardens, as is the syrup as rosemary grows abundantly on the property. We are also lucky to have a plentiful organic supply of local fruit to make the necessary lemon juice and the orange bitter.

For decoration we use black pepper (this was one of the most sought after ingredients when Vasco da Gama arrived from India back in the late 15th century) and a sprig of rosemary.

Made In Douro

From Executive Chef, Stefan Goehcke, Six Senses Laamu, Maldives

The salad is made entirely of our local ingredients including coconuts, sponge coconut, passion fruit, papaya, abalone mushrooms, fennel, aloe vera, rocket leaves, beach lettuce, morning glory, mizuna, coriander, tarragon, mung beans, moringa, curry leaves, butterfly pea flowers, garden cress and red radish sprouts.

For a delicious dressing, why not try whisking passion fruit pulp with coconut oil?
