THIS COCKTAIL IS:

Inspiration for the cocktail : « Although we can see the clothes, bodies and movements of others, we cannot see what they think. Even when we speak, a tiny part of what we think is transmitted, the rest remains in a private space, silent, invisible and free. When we meet another person in a corridor, this silence and freedom travels with the person. » Eberhard Froehlich’s message speaks to me a lot. It has always been my motto that we must never OVER or UNDER estimate the person in front of us. We must never forget that people live things that affect their attitude, their non-verbal, their look. A person who exudes extreme happiness with a contagious smile may, in truth, be deeply sad, alone, uncomfortable in his skin. When on the contrary, a quiet person with a neutral look is probably shy with many original facets to offer. I discovered several people, who surprised me, once after piercing their carapace. And these lessons, both colorful and dark, inspire me every day to try to learn more about people before I judge them or to confine them to a category of humans. This inspired me to make an unexpected cocktail in link with Froehlich’s work. At first glance, one might think that the man on the mural is sullen, depressed, or even hang-over. But his facial expression and his non-verbal do not cry depressed for me. So I wanted to prove that one should not judge a book by its cover by disclosing what the man drinks in his ordinary cup of coffee; a cocktail with colors and festive aromas that inspires conviviality.
