Evening class

Last night, we were invited to join the P. Cutajar 2012 Wine Experience at Razzatt L-Abjad along with restaurateurs, customers and other media daaahlinks.

Using the psychology employed by supermarkets (not in Malta, obviously) we headed to the right, thinking this is where the most inviting stock would be and weren’t disappointed, but as we worked our way around the gardens, we found a stand serving a new cocktail, which I just have to share with you, because I am sure you will appreciate it and indeed, like it.

You will need Martini Rose, some Prosecco/Brut/Asti, a wedge of lime and sprig of mint per glass and ice, preferably crushed. Put the ice into the glass and add the mint. Rim the glass with the lime and put this into the glass too. Add a measure of Martini Rose and top up with fizz; the mixture should be about 50/50.

We tested a second of these, just in case the first was a fluke – but, they have given me an excuse to use the Martini Rose that is lurking in the boat’s ‘cellar’ for an on board cocktail party – which will see the serving of a variety of Barcardi-based Mojitos too.

We were invited to join a masterclass on Laroche wines with a history and tasting of a number of their varieties, the Laroche L’Avenir Chenin Blanc was unanimously our favourite.
