DDPF - Constança Cordeiro

Although I'm not a fan of alcoholic drinks, I have to confess that Constança Cordeiro's work makes me curious! The cocktails she creates in her bars Toca da Raposa and at Uniboth in Lisbon, combine their own distilled drinks and seasonal ingredients (harvested by the staff!), in a menu that changes regularly with the seasons - just like a good restaurant, for me, does with food. Constança also creates the drinks for other bars and restaurants and also has a podcast - No Floating Ice. There is a lot to get to know her and the things she creates and inspires, and now one more, in today's From the Inside Out. Hope you enjoy!
