WHAT IS ASTURIES CIDER WEEK?
Enjoy a multitude of events throughout our Asturian geography during the week of March 20th to 26th.
Here is the list of collaborating establishments of the Asturies Cider Week and all the activities that they will carry out between March 20 and 26. Look at the date of the activity you want to go to and if it is necessary to make a prior reservation.
EL PATIO DE BUTACAS | From Thursday 23 to Sunday 26
- “MADRE” – Special cocktail menu with cider | from March 20 to 26
El Patio de Butacas is a small cocktail bar run by Alberto Díaz and Tania López, and located in an Asturian town, surrounded by tradition, attachment, nature and romanticism. That is, they have everything at their fingertips.
They have spent years developing projects where the collection of their own ingredients has a lot of weight; with them they elaborate particular premixes that they use within their menu, which helps them create special, authentic and, in part, exclusive drinks. The land bears fruit for a short season of time, and it is there that they exploit their full potential.
The love for the roots, tradition, contact with nature and the defense of one’s own, have made his latest creation a menu called “Madre”: a small sample of only eight drinks made entirely with derivatives of cider and seasonal and local products, almost all collected from their own orchard, just four kilometers from the premises. It is also an ode to their grandmothers, the ones that give their names to the cocktails and who also appear in the reason for the elaborations, in many cases versions of dishes that they themselves prepared.
Ferns, chestnuts, pumpkin, blue cheese, algae… are some of the ingredients that, right now, create “Mother”, but this menu changes every day, just like the products that the land provides.
But, it is not the first time that gastronomic cocktails have been created in El Patio de Butacas. Just two years ago Alberto Díaz slipped into the TOP 50 of World Class Spain with a drink in which he took advantage of the liters of bacon stew broth from a nearby place to create a cordial, which mixed with whiskey and bread kvass Sourdough, Guinness, chocolate and hazelnuts delighted those present for a while.
Another of his creations, with which they made it into the TOP 20 of World Class Spain last year, was a shot of gin, fern srhub and celery vinegar and spelled liqueur.
They are in the ideal place to use everything within their reach in their recipes and thus create a project full of personality that surprises inside and outside its borders.
Price per person: according to special letter “Mother”
