The darkest night of the year has finally come. Witches, spirits, vampires, evil pumpkins and ghosts are ready to steal the show. The only thing left to do is let our fantasy flow, by creating disguises and special effects capable of scaring even the most daring! And in this gloomy occasion, while children will be “trick or treating” around, the grown ups will have a nice excuse to toast under the light of the full moon, sipping a cocktail so tasty that will give you the chills.
After the huge success of the most iconic vodka-based cocktail of the moment, the K-Fruit Mule (a fruity evolution of the Moscow Mule), Keglevich is coming back to “trick” everybody into a real treat: the K-Fruit Mule Halloween Edition, a themed mix that will make exquisite even the scariest of the toasts.
This new recipe has come to life from the insight of Vincenzo Lo Sappio, bartender of the Gin Fish Tasty and Tonic of Barletta and an always-up-to-date mixology professional, that has been working in the hospitality field since 15 years.
Simple and quick to make, is ideal to serve the new cocktail in Keglevich’s iconic copper cup, better if decorated with a singed cinnamon stick or rosemary and, don’t forget, a touch of pumpkin! To discover more visit the section “The Cocktails” on our website.
Trick or treat? K-Fruit Mule Halloween Edition!
Food Pairing is the art born in the Anglo-Saxon countries of combining food with spirits such as gin, vodka and whiskey. The concept is built on the association of foods based on their molecular and aromatic composition. Wherefore, green light for all the cocktails able to enhance the contrast of flavors or their similarity. The goal is not just to find flavors that go well together, but to create a mix in which food and cocktails are mutually reinforcing and extracting unexpected nuances from each other.
What food goes perfectly with Moscow Mule?
If you think you haven’t found the perfect combination between food and cocktail, you might have not taken into consideration the Moscow Mule. The taste of vodka, together with the pinching side of ginger and the refreshing power of lime, make it one of the most interesting cocktails to pair food with. From paella to the more classic platter of cold cuts, you can never get tired of it. Even fish fits perfectly with this cocktail: spaghetti with zucchini and shrimps or plate-grilled salmon, both create a contrast of fragrances able to leave the mark. Another surprise is to find in potatoes; whether boiled, roasted, fried or backed, it’s an explosion of flavours when juxtaposed to a Moscow Mule. For the lovers of a more international cuisine, we suggest the cocktail together with a dish of Pad Thai. Ginger and Lime are the leading actors in both the Moscow Mule and the Thai cuisine: the attraction between the two is just irresistibile, and the cool notes of the cocktail will be able to quench the tipical spicyness of the dish.
