What an adventure I had this past week when I found out about this competition. With the short time frame I went to Warehouse Wines & Spirits in NYC and purchased the Rakomelo (they were out of stock of Mastiha). So my fate was decided for me... I was to create a cocktail with Rakomelo! I love hot drinks like tsikoudia but I have a bit of a rebellious spirit so I wanted to create an after dinner digestif cocktail that would be surprisingly uplifting playing on the orange blossom honey, pomace grapes, and cinnamon in a fun delightful way.
