For our next article in our series “Behind the Bar“, after the Flower Power by Manu Ruiz. While the goal of this series is to make you discover cocktails that you can enjoy in the best cocktail bars in Canada, sometimes the best mixologists reorient themselves and change their career, this is the case of Maximiliano Vallée Valletta , of which we spoke in the 2019 Winter Magazine, who is now general manager and ambassador for the White Keys vodka, the Rhum Saint-Marie, the Gin Portage and the brand new Les Îles aperitif” Here’s, for you, The Bonaventure by Maximiliano Vallée Valletta.


The story behind the Bonaventure by Maximiliano Vallée Valletta

So Maximiliano, where does the inspiration for the cocktail come from?

Yes, I did Le Bonaventure, the latter is a cocktail that is a little representative of me. As I drink Old Fashioned all the time, I also like the Negroni and the appetizer is really what I like. What I did was a Vesper twist. Gin and vodka, but aperitivo with an olive. I like what is a little stronger in alcohol, it can be a little like a martini. I made a Vesper twist with the White Keys vodka.

Ingredients for the cocktail:

Preparation for the cocktail:

  • Pour the 3 alcohols into a glass (we use the one from Alambika) to mix with a large ice cream
  • Sweat the ice well enough to cool the cocktail.
    (Maximiliano suggests the ice made by Les Marchands, a Quebec-based ice company)
  • Transfer everything in a glass and decorate with an olive and an orange zest.
  • And it’s ready.

To do at home. Enjoy!
