The Zulia Garden was the flagship cocktail of the Zulia Garden Club in Maracaibo, Venezuela. The club is long gone, but its spirit lives on in this evocative cocktail. It’s at once sweet, strong, sharp, and soft – a recipe worth saving from the dustbin of history.
- 2 parts Light rum
- 1 part Dry vermouth
- ½ part Cherry brandy
- ½ part Egg white or Aquafaba
- 2 dashes Grenadine or Pomegranate molasses
- 2 tsp Simple syrup
- 1 tsp Lime juice
Shake all ingredients first without ice to emulsify the egg white, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
