生命万岁

莫林X金巴利:苦甜交错的人生经历 | A bittersweet sipper with MONIN and Campari

24岁时,杨青云因为一场打斗而在医院躺了三个月。肉体上的伤痛如今已经痊愈,但直到现在,杨青云还是能感受到这次事件对他带来的精神上的影响。“苦涩的经历让人成长,更有勇气去追求甜蜜的果实。”他说,这让他挥手告别过去,并追求自己的梦想。“当时我问自己,做什么能够让我更快乐?调酒是我的答案。”

Hugo Yang was 24 years old when he was in a big fight that left him in hospital for three months. The physical scars from that incident have mostly healed, but emotionally Yang still feels it today. “Bitter experiences push you to grow up, to be braver, to chase sweeter results,” he says, and that drove him to turn away from his past and pursuit his passion. “I asked myself, ‘What did I enjoy?’,” Yang says. “Bartending was the answer.”

如今,杨青云定居上海,在Flask集团旗下的Botanist酒吧担任店经理。杨青云将自己苦甜交错的往事,调入一杯鸡尾酒,并将其命名为Viva La Vida——生命万岁。金巴利的多重层次口感,以及莫林柚子果酱和水蜜桃茶糖浆的浓郁,让这杯鸡尾酒尝起来像人生的苦甜交错一样复杂。“调酒不只是从吧台后献出一杯酒。而是从进门开始,椅子的高度、桌子的高度、灯光、音乐,气氛环境本身,其实都是调酒的一环。”

Now, as store manager at Botanist, part of the Flask Group in Shanghai, Yang has channelled his bittersweet moments to create this drink Viva La Vida. Comprising of the bite of Campari and the richness of Le Fruit de MONIN Yuzu and MONIN Peach Tea syrup, it’s a cocktail that like bartending, or even life, is made up of parts both painful and pleasant. “Bartending is not only about presenting what’s behind the bar,” Yang says. “Instead, it starts at the door, the height of the chairs and tables, lighting, music, they are all parts of bartending.”
