Light vermouth & Lemongrass

This elegant and minimalistic drink combines the flavours of vermouth and lemongrass. It was created by Christian Tang, a bartender based in Copenhagen.


Christian Tang is a wizard with flavours. In his bar Kyros&Co he creates cocktails that explore each ingredient in a creative way. Even though the ingredients in this drink are not local, the minimalistic approach and the attention to details make it a great representation of Nordic drinks.
