A dessert drink for chocolate lovers that gets its zing from Strega, white rum and the olfactory use of peppermint.

70 ml Mozart white chocolate liqueur
25 ml Strega
15 ml Wray & Nephew white overproof rum

Preparation: Stirred, serve over ice and garnished with a mint stalk.

The Papageno was created in 2006 at Le Lion in Hamburg by Gonçalo de Sousa Monteiro. It is named after Papageno, a character from Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute”, as the main ingredient, Mozart white chocolate liqueur, is also named after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The opera has fairy-tale elements, and the Italian Strega-Liqueur used also refers to the fairy-tale world with its name, because translated “strega” means “witch”. The bird catcher Papageno with his plumage can therefore serve as a symbol for these fairy-tale elements. [1]

Like Jörg Meyer, we prefer this drink prepared with a little more strega for the sake of added herbaceousness. [3]

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
