An artisanal cocktail trend of the season
—AlleyBar introduces The Untold Series
Have you seen a whiskey sour that looks like strawberry infused water? No, it’s not artificial flavouring. The secret? Milk Clarification.
A technique used since centuries ago to strip the edges of rougher spirits, milk clarification has found its way into the glasses in AlleyBar.
A paradoxical statement
As the name implies, these cocktails are made with milk and yet paradoxically perfectly clear. You may think it’s only made possible with fancy equipment and scientific knowhow, and yet, the truth couldn’t be farther.
First thought to have been used in the 1600s, milk clarified beverages are now back in fashion, and our bartenders here at AlleyBar are discovering the joys of the extremely versatile classic process.
As clear as day
These transparent tipples are a crowd-pleaser due to the nostalgic taste and are popular among bartenders because they’re easy to pre-batch and make at scale. Despite the fact that preparation of the cocktail can take up to hours and is tedious, the process of serving it is minimalistic, much like how it looks.
Comprising of a trio of clarified cocktails that bear no visible resemblance to their classical counterparts, AlleyBar proudly presents to you The Ghosted Colada, The Invisible Sling and The Unseen Sour. One of 2020’s most coveted cocktail trends, enjoy The Untold Edition at $20 per glass and pair it with our crowd-pleaser bites. View Menu
