Yesterday I met up with a couple of friends at Breidenbacher Hof’s Capella Bar to enjoy a night of cocktails. I am not sure if you are already familiar with the Capella Bar, but the atmosphere and design of this bar is extraordinary. Bar Manager Ewald J. Stromer and his team are known for their very special cocktail creations. Between the décor and the menu it is one of my favorite places.
The night was full of laughter and storytelling. And we made a point of trying several of the bar’s signature cocktails. At the end I took a vote and we decided our favorite was the Sailing Pearanhas, which is mainly composed of rum, ginger wine and pears.
Best part? I was able to procure the recipe to share with you!
4 cl Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
2 cl Stones Ginger Wine
1 cl Fresh lime
4 cl Pear mash
1 Dash Peychauds Bitter
2 Pinch Diabolo Zuckermischung
2 Big basil leaves
Muddle the basil in the shaker and shake all ingredients together with the ice. Then take a martini glass and decorate it with 1/8 of a pear covered in Diabolo sugar.
I hope you enjoy!
