THIS COCKTAIL IS:

Inspiration for La Joconde cocktail : Stikki Peaches takes classic artworks and reinvents them with a punk twist. That’s what I wanted to do with this martini, a classic cocktail with gin and vermouth, but revisited with the mezcal, which gives it the punk touch. The glass, first rinsed with a blend of St-Germain and rose water, represents the softer, more traditional tattoos that Stikki Peaches’ Mona Lisa is sporting while drops of habanero oil, basil and squid ink oil represent the livelier colors and the more brutal and temperamental side of the work.

(This cocktail was created by Jérémy Bourgeois (bar manager of Milky Way cocktail bar)
