Charmed Circle Strong Waters: Chevalier
Chevalier was cultivated from the seeds of a ‘fine ear of barley’ that an English labourer found in his shoe. From this humble beginning the varietal went on to dominate the British brewing harvest during the 1800s. That was until a tax on malt forced brewers to substitute Chevalier with cheaper grains. As a new make, Chevalier presents a creamy dairy quality that is heightened with the addition of wheat spirit creating an incredibly rich mouthfeel.
A new spin on the classic tequila based cocktail. Refreshing, zingy and really easy to make.
50 ml Chevalier
50 ml Grapefruit Juice
10 ml Lime Juice
10 ml Agave syrup
50 ml Soda water
Shake the first four ingredients, strain into a highball with ice and top with soda.
