Delano brings readers some winter tipples with a local twist. Each day this week, we will publish recipes for drinks that contain at least one home-grown ingredient and which were invented by local drinks makers.
Paname is a cool and classy bar renowned for being ahead of the game when it comes to cocktails. Not shy of sharing their fun and passion for drinks, João Russo, who has been making cocktails around Europe for over six years, is always coming up with new inventions and bouncing ideas around with manager Gabriel Boisante.
The team at Paname, who like to stand out from the crowd, remain defiant in the face of winter and their new menu features a drink that is instead a pleasant reminder of summer. “Of course we make the classics, but we also try to think outside of the box and come up with new twists for old recipes. New on the menu is Sex on Remich, its tell-tale name pointing to a twist of the classic Sex on the Beach,” Gabriel explains.
The cocktail uses not only Gales Jubilée Riesling brut crémant from Ellange, but also Mansfeld vodka. “Mansfeld vodka is straight, strong and balances well with the sweetness of the orange and peach fruity elements,” says Gabriel. “The bubbly crémant topping is a necessary last step and serves to give it a festive feel, fitting with the season.”
Gales is a winery that celebrated its 100th anniversary last year and this particular crémant is made solely using Riesling grapes, giving it a distinctive flavour.
“We have a strong attachment to Luxembourg and we use products from here as much as possible, not only because of our love of the country but because they are of good quality,” Gabriel says.
Paname has also added Ramborn, Luxembourg’s first craft cider, to both hot and cold drinks this year.
