What inspired the drink?
I called my cocktail À la Mionetto because to me, the land of prosecco is more than a terroir. It’s a style, it’s a moment. It’s when you sit down and decide to enjoy yourself and the ones around you. It’s an important moment, but it’s also unpretentious. Mionetto represents more than a brand. It comes with history, it’s carries its legacy, but down the line, drinking it doesn’t have to be so serious. It’s fun. It’s light. It’s bubbly.
That’s how I decided to create my cocktail. Contrasts between high acidity, energetic, intense, vibrant and fun notes of the passion fruit, lemon and orange, mixed with serious, more complex, all grape based distillates to pair with Mionetto, that carry sweet notes of vanilla, hazelnuts and salted butter.
The result is a cocktail that highlights the flavor profile of Mionetto and embodies the spirit of Mionetto:
And it’s delicious.
