Blueberry-infused Kentucky bourbon whiskey, spiced rum, pineapple gomme, thyme-infused cointreau, monk bitters, fernet branca foam

Based on Hayao Miyazaki’s animated movie of the same name, Princess Mononoke is an exercise in the constant cycle of preservation and destruction. In our tribute to the Japanese masterpiece, we deconstruct some traditional bar ingredients in exciting new ways. Each element of the cocktail undergoes a drastic transformation. The finished product is redolent of spiced red fruits, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and pineapple, while the foam has a bittersweet, pungent, and minty bite. A worthy cocktail for adventurous palates seeking a new thrill.
