Empirical at Home: COMBAT with Margot Lecarpentier for International Women’s Day

Empirical at Home: COMBAT with Margot Lecarpentier for International Women’s Day

Margot Lecarpentier opened Combat in 2017 as “an homage to the fight for women’s rights”.

Since then, Combat has been a stronghold for women’s rights, and every year on International Women’s Day Margot organizes a fundraising event for “La Maison des Femmes de Paris.”

As the situation continues to be increasingly crappy for our industry, Margot will not be able to open Combat on March 8th, so we decided to join forces and release COMBAT, a new limited pre-bottled cocktail available via La Liquiderie and Mezcal Brothers.

   

Based on our Pasilla Mixe chili spirit Ayuuk, COMBAT is a riff on a Hanky Panky, a cocktail created in the early 1900s by Ada ‘Coley’ Coleman, the first and only female head bartender of the American Bar in London.

Cocktail connoisseurs will also notice the influence of the Martinez through the addition of Maraschino.

A cocktail originally made by a woman, twisted by a woman for women. Margot describes it as “strong and smooth, just like Combat.”

All proceeds will go to La Maison des Femmes de Paris.

25% ABV.

Key Ingredients:
Ayuuk, Lustau Vermouth, Luxardo Maraschino, Branca Menta, Peychaud’s Bitters

Tasting Notes: Boozy but balanced, smooth and fresh with an overall roundness, slightly smoky.

Recommended serve: Over ice.

All pre-bottled cocktails should be immediately consumed and refrigerated until consumption. Best Before: 01.04.21

If you're not in Paris or can't score a bottle, here is the recipe to easily pull it off at home.

3cl Ayuuk
3cl Sweet Vermouth
0,5cl Luxardo Maraschino
