Step by step
It should be prepared in a cocktail shaker and served ether in a wine glass, or a highball glass if ice is to be added. First add the lemon, the gin (which must be very dry, for example a London Dry Gin), and then top up with the Cava. This cocktail was created at Harry’s Bar in Paris. These days many barmen add a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint.
Food pairing: skewers of griddled prawns, smoked salmon, turmeric roasted cauliflower.
Time of day: a reception cocktail for meetings and celebrations.
