What inspired the drink?
I wanted to create a unifying and warm cocktail, two words that come to mind when I think of Italian culture. It was then that I thought of the family brunches that brought me happiness and warmth when I was younger and thus I wanted to convey this feeling to my cocktail. A classic and simple brunch, with meat, eggs, breads, fresh fruits, all lengthened with prosecco, which, with its orange juice, reminds us of a must-have for brunch, mimosa.
