Making the Carambola Pantheon Cocktail – by Gal Granov

Whisky Cocktail

We gave a few whisky bloggers a simple brief: come up with a great cocktail using our 8 year old blended whisky. We’ve had some great responses, and today’s cocktail is no exception! This recipe was sent to us by Gal Granov who writes the brilliant blog “Whisky Israel”, which is a great source of tasting notes and whisky reviews (despite being written in a country with an incredibly high tax on spirits!). So without further ado…

Carambola Pantheon Cocktail

 

By Gal Granov

This cocktail is based on a recipe given to me by an Israeli Bartender (Oron), and is based on a homemade Carambola [Ed. – also known as Starfruit] liqueur made by Nimrod Rozenblat. Nimrod and his brother are two very unique Israelis who specialise in homemade liqueurs, beers, wines, and even rum! All manually made in very small quantities from the freshest ingredients.

You can replace the Carambola liqueur with another sweet, fruity liqueur, or try to get hold of another homemade Carambola liqueur. I've fiddled with the recipe myself, and came to the conclusion that the best combination would be the Master of Malt 8 year old with some Laphroaig Quarter Cask.

Originally we made this cocktail with Islay Mist blended whisky which is good VFM and gives you that Laphroaig peat. The spiciness of the ginger creates the right  balance between the peat of the Laphroaig and sweetness of the carambola.
If u don't like ginger, u can make the honey syrup with black pepper, it will work as well.
