Do you remember the first time a humble snowflake landed upon your tongue? Funnily enough, neither did we…until we stumbled across Tony Conigliaro’s cocktail ‘snow’. The boundary-pushing mixologist spent three years perfecting the cocktail to not only taste like snow but capture the emotional memory of the sensation itself. A concoction of chalk, clay, flint and white enoki mushroom, the cocktail, somehow, emulates that feeling of snow melting when it reaches your tongue. Rather than replicating the classics, Conigliaro challenges cocktail convention by using abstract ingredients to tell new stories through niche flavours. We hear one of the cocktails tastes of violins... Good riddance dry January!
