“CHERRY BANA” BY BRUNO CARVALHO, TOP 10 PORTUGAL, BOLS AROUND THE WORLD 2013
The Algarve is a touristic spot , and there is a saying that goes something like ..... To be perfect all it needs is a cherry on top ....so i can say my motivation for this drink is the perfect setting with the perfect cocktail, but with a cherry on the bottom ;)
4cl BOLS CHERRY BRANDY
5 to 6 red cristalized cherries
3cl fresh lemon juice
FOR THE FOAM:
5cl FINEST CALL BANANA
4cl BOLS BANANA
1- 2 BAR SPOONS OF SOY LECITINE
FLAT WATER Q.B TO PRODUCE FOAM
GARNISH: Red Cristalized cherries, Banana peel.
For the foam:
add the banana, the "finest call banana" and the "Bols Banana" into a blender and blend, after the ingredients will become a thick liquid and then add them into a boiling pan and some water so it become a little more liquid , add the soy lecticine and mix it with the same machine you use to make a normal soup until it creates a nice consistent foam.
foam is done ! let´s go for the cocktail :
For the cocktail:
muddle the cherries together with the CRF, BOLS CHERRY BRANDY and the fresh lemon juice, add ice , shake and double strain into a Martini Glass, after that, top up with the foam using a bar spoon and garnish with red cristalized cherries and banana peel.... ENJOY!!!
