The Venetian Merchant
This long drink is dedicated to Venice, possibly the most fascinating city on earth that once was one of the main trading centres of Europe. Venetian merchants were traders and often brought in exotic ingredients, spices and spirits from lands that once were far away.
Aromatic and complex, this cocktail is most suited as an after-dinner drink.
Serve in large Prosecco glasses.
You can use a shaker or alternatively mix this cocktail directly in the glass.
To prepare the melon syrup cut 2 long slices and place them in a pan with 300 ml of water and 300 g of sugar. Cook it through for at least 20 minutes and let it rest for another 20. Now strain with a muslin cloth or clean towel.
Add the rum, the lillet blanc, the syrup and angostura to the shaker and mix with a few ice cubes. Shake well and strain into the glass. Add a few more ice cubes and top up with the cold Prosecco DOC.
Garnish with a slice of dry orange.
