The Disco Waldo

Main Spirit Cognac
Difficulty Medium
Technique Shaken

A riff on a Sidecar, The Disco Waldo, created by Alex da Fonseca from The Blockman in Johannesburg, takes inspiration from the colours and flavours found in the disco era of cocktails. The tropical fruit notes in the Cape Vintage Port plays beautifully with the citrus of the Cointeau and the plum and fig notes of the Cognac.
