Aqua Shard launches ‘wind up wind down’ cocktails

Calming Cognac (wind down)

The aptly named Calming Cognac mixes a¬†Sauternes and camomile reduction with Hennessy cognac and absinthe ‘air.’ The true test of any ‘wind down’ cocktail should surely be whether it can calm the nerves of a trainee city solicitor. Luckily, db¬†was accompanied by one to the launch and can confirm that Calming Cognac certainly did the trick!

As Missaglia explained on the night: “I wanted to create a calming cocktail with camomile and replicate the experience of having a relaxing bubble bath! The absinthe air is made from camomile and absinthe combined with still water and a touch of soya lactin. We used the same mechanism to make the bubbles as you get in a fish tank.”

“We bought a pump and put it in a jug with the mixture and then pumped air into the mixture to create the bubbles. The soya lactin helps to produce fluffy, yet stable bubbles that hold their shape”.
