Sophia Loren

ophia Loren
1 ¼ oz Cardinal Mendoza Spanish Brandy
¾ oz Cherry Heering
¼ oz Del Maguey Chichicaba Mescal
2 Dashes Angostura orange bitters
Flammed Orange Zest
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with freshly cracked ice and stir gently until chilled and softly diluted. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a flamed orange zest.

Sophia Loren in a spicy Spanish film from the 1940’s, a stunning black on black dress accentuating her natural curves. At first glance it seems simple and delicate; upon further inspection you see that the devil in the details. This woman is to be respected and savored. Sophia Loren is timeless, elegant and sexy. The rich hue of the cocktail will remind you of a bracelet of Madagascar Rubies. A woman drinking this cocktail would have cat-like grace and balance, she'd be rich and well-mannered. But if you cross her, the spicy and smoky tones would have you wishing you had never set your eyes on her. After the last scene, her image seems to burn in the back of your mind. The robust memory of the experience, and this cocktail, will linger and leave you wanting more.
