More than a bar gin drinks, the Rio Coquetelaria project, by Amázzoni Gin, drew attention to the role of the cocktail in gastronomy. Nowadays, a cocktail goes beyond a drink, has taste, has history, has research. And that is what Márcio Silva, at the head of the Guillotine Bar, one of the best in the world, made clear in the class "Brazil and its ingredients in the cocktail".
"I used maxixe in the tonic gin that you drink, this is a Brazilian flavor, which is in Amázzoni's composition, it's just as refreshing as the cucumber, stop using cucumber just because you've seen it there, & # 39; he said, orchestrating almost a revolution.
Recognizing the virtues of Brazil was not a simple process for him. He lived most of his life outside the country, believing he would work here would be a survival, never a life. Until a year ago he opened the Guillotine in São Paulo.
"There I knew I would do it differently, that I and my team would watch people and not cocktail parties," he said.
A dose of craziness? Yes please. And double, if necessary.
In the classroom Márcio announced the arrival of a new national gin on the market. An Amázzoni with a Guillotine footprint. Will be on the market next month. Here in Rio Gastronomia arrived today, with Marcio himself having cocktails with him in the bar of the balcony of the Amázzoni.
