Black truffle sour cocktail
I love a good cocktail and love experimenting with interesting flavours, ingredients and unique spirits. I am also a big Gin fan, so this cocktail inspired by a similar cocktail by Gordon Ramsay, uses one of my favourite Gins from Hellfire Bluff Distillery in Tasmania and one of my favourite ingredients – black truffle . The Amaro Montenegro works really well with the truffle as it adds sweetness and enhances the earthy flavour of the truffle. The lemon juice is balanced with the sugar and you can add more or less sugar to taste if you like it more or less sour. The egg white adds a foamy top to the cocktail that is topped off with freshly shaved truffle. Indulgent and delicious – this is a cocktail what is worth trying if you have some left over truffle to use up!

This is a drink that definitely impressed as part of Australian Cocktail Month. It took me back to fruit tingle days in Brisbane at City Rowers Nightclub – but this was waaaay better! It was made at La Costa in Fortitude Valley Brisbane and called Oceano Blu....
