Colonial Affair

34 oz Solbeso
34 oz Pisco, Campo de Encanto
34 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Rose
34 oz White Crème de Cacao, Marie Brizard
34 oz Lemon juice
1 t Simple syrup
Shake, strain, up.
Solbeso is a dry cacao distillate.
Joaquín made this as a riff on the 20th Century and intended to name it the 17th Century, but was annoyed to see that the name was taken by a drink served at another bar (not, as far as I know, our own Zachary Pearson's drink of that name).
From other users
  • Surprisingly floral, so much so that I thought there was orange flower water in it. Delicious and balanced, though a tad sweet (maybe omit the simple at home). Solbeso seems like a great ingredient.
