Eden’s Ember Deconstructed

Eden’s Ember Deconstructed is a variation of Eden’s Ember, the winning cocktail I created for Canada’s 2008 Tabasco Cocktail competition.

The original drink has a herbal, fruity flavor with two different layers of spiciness, thanks to the Jalapeno and the Original Tabasco pepper sauces.

I wanted to deconstruct the drink and reintroduce the flavors back into the cocktail so that it looks different, but it tastes pretty much the same.

Blend using an immersion blender; try not to incorporate too much air.
Fine strain and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
Pour into an iSi type of canister and charge with one N20 cartridge.
