To complete the cocktail, Filippo combined Stolen spiced rum and Frangelico for a festive kick. A pinch of salt and nutmeg enhanced the flavour, while a dusting of icing sugar added a touch of sweetness. To give it that extra Christmas flair, we garnished the cocktail with a sprig of mint and a delicate cranberry tuille, creating a visual and taste sensation that truly embodied the holiday spirit.
Imagine camping by the fire at night, where the edible moss represents the Tallebudgera Valley with hearty and tropical flavours and sipping the tastes of Italy through the Montenegro and Aperol, combined with a world-class rum and orange juice for a good dose of vitamins.
