What inspired the drink?
"Collina" roughly translates to "Hillside" ... a tribute to the hills of Northern Italy where my prosecco grapes are grown. My inspiration for this cocktail comes from the beautiful architectural brilliance of Italian buildings as well as here In Halifax. I also admire the minetto bottle , it's innate passion for design, its smooth curves and appealing orange label made with fine materials is a beauty to look at. I wanted to build a cocktail that stands tall, looks good and is made with finest italian and local products. This cocktail is a tribute to Spritz cocktails and the famous Aperol spritz, an Italian classic.
