Pedras e Nuvens

Pedras e Nuvens
1 oz. cachaça
1 oz. gin
1/2 oz. St. Germaine
1/4 oz. maraschino
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
3 dashes orange bitters swirled in cocktail glass
stir with ice until chilled, pour into glass

Light, fruity, nice balance of rough & smooth, earthy and floral. might try with different citrus and/or more flavorful gin (might work loverly with one of those novelty lime gins or with Hendricks--which is not to be thought of as a "novelty gin" I realize)

I was thinking of The Sugarloaf since there's a granite & quartz mountain in Brazil, which appeared in Moonraker I believe. Or The Corcovado, which is the mountain where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands in Rio. The Corcovado would reflect the Brazilian character of the cachaça as well as the light airiness of the drink (and I suppose the clouds and pristine stone of the statue). The evening started as further exploration of The Aviation, remember...
