A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to accompany Dave Massey aka #Brumhour to try a new summer cocktail at Rofuto in the Park Regis.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll already be aware Ryan has visited a few times to sample food and whisky. As I’m not a big fan of whisky so it was interesting to see how I would fare with this sake based cocktail.
Rofuto is based on the 16th floor of the Park Regis Hotel, at the Five Ways end of Broad Street. It offers lovely views of the Birmingham’s skyline, which is best seen at glittering night rather than the many cranes and scaffolding during the day.
They have created a Japanese inspired twist on the classic summer drink Aperol Spritz with Sake, peach liqueur and yuzu juice.
Whilst catching up with Dave, our mixologist got to work on the cocktail. Sadly no pictures of the creative process but you can happily enjoy the video shot by Rofuto:
For someone who doesn’t like Sake, this was actually perfect for me because the peach liqueur and yuzu juice added a lovely sweetness. I also liked the Vog prosecco that was used to make our drink.
The drink is on their current cocktail menu and available now.
