The story behind Jey Laflamme’s cocktail
So Jey, where does the inspiration for the cocktail come from?
The inspiration comes from Naked and famous (where I get the name Le Peignoir), a Mezcal-based cocktail that is a classic with 4 ingredients, so I’m going to make it a Quebec twist. Every season, there’s always a classic cocktail coming back, I do not know why, but it’s like that, and all the bars make their own version. Last year it was the Paperplane. So for The Peignoir, I took the El Tinieblo, a very smoked Mezcal, very nice, one of the best I know. For the Quebec twist, I use Amermelade, a Quebec appetizer. And I use grapefruit juice instead of lemon juice to go well with the Amermelade and the Chartreuse Jaune, a Chartreuse a little more liquory, more herbal and less strong in alcohol, I like it also only with a big cube of ice as an excellent digestive. I think it’s a cocktail that is very refreshing, very summery, bitter. Perfect to start the summer.
The recipe to succeed The Peignoir by Jey Laflamme
How to make it :
- Mix the 4 ingredients in a shaker and mix well
- Double filter in a cup to remove all the pulp from the grapefruit juice
