For this cocktail menu, we wanted to showcase our neighborhood.
Each cocktail is dedicated to a business located around our bar.
Visit them, they are amazing :)
We infused Limoncello with Parmesan and mixed it with the delicious Koval Organic Cranberry Liqueur. It adds some roundness and length to the drink.
We poured in Lemon Juice, crushed some Basil Leaves and added drops of Saline Solution and Bittermens Hellfire Bitters to open up the drink and bring a little bit of spiciness.
To have a nice foam we added Aquafaba (chickpea water).
You have a foamy, savory and slightly salty drink with notes of basil and parmesan.
We dedicate this cocktail to the Pizza Bar La Belle Équipe.
A long wooden bar, a raw and industrial atmosphere, highlighted with metal, wood and bricks ... The setting does not remind regular pizza places in Brussels.
The quality of the products, most of them directly imported directly from Italy: coppa, dried beef, mozzarella di buffala, arugula, fresh spinach... which match perfectly with a homemade paste (like everything else) and a tomato sauce full of sunshine and flavor.
The main goal of La Belle équipe is to offer a pizza with good quality products at an affordable price.
