Themed cocktail: ‘The Marriage of Fig & Rose’
The cocktail contains a Peppered Pear Gin, Olorosso Sherry, Carnation Liqueur, Rose Water, Fig Leaf, Honey, Citric Acid and a drop of water – all carbonated and them served in a flute with a carnation tied to the stem. Gin and Sherry reflect the opera’s original Seville setting, the carnation liqueur and garnish is a nod to Cherubino’s leap from the window and crushing the flowers underfoot, and the rose water is inspired by the final line of Susanna’s Act IV aria ‘Come quickly my beloved’ (‘Deh vieni, non tardar’) – “I will crown your head with roses”.
