Re­vival of a clas­sic

go! Platteland - - NEWS AND EVENTS -

A leg­endary cock­tail in­gre­di­ent that still ap­pears in 40 recipes in the equally fa­mous The Savoy Cock­tail Book (even though it has not been pro­duced for at least 70 years), has been res­ur­rected thanks to a cu­ri­ous Dan­ish cock­tail maker and Swart­land wine­maker Adi Badenhorst. Caper­i­tif is an apéri­tif of for­ti­fied Chenin Blanc in­fused with the bit­ter flavour of cin­chona bark and 35 botan­i­cal ex­tracts, in­clud­ing fyn­bos, cala­mus and naartjies. In the 1920s it was used in popular South African cock­tails like the Barney Bar­nato, Mud River and Un­cle Paul, but then died a silent death. The new Caper­i­tif con­tains 17,5% al­co­hol and you drink it on the rocks with a slice of cit­rus, or with tonic wa­ter. Try Adi’s new Swan Dry Cape Tonic, which con­tains qui­nine, fresh lime, car­damom and mint. Just the thing to get the bet­ter of a hot day. Con­tact aabaden­horst.com
