What inspired the drink?

Inspired by my lust for travel and the magical feeling you get when you see a beautiful place for the first time. My cocktail is called Mozzafiato which in Italian means breathtaking. This cocktail is a celebration of escapism and is a bubbly variation of a classic Mai Tai. The bright tropical flavours and zesty effervescence awaken the palate and transports the imagination to a luxurious place, taking your breath away. The candy corn syrup brings a sweet vanilla and marshmallow flavour that enhances the fruity notes and honey sweetness of the Mionetto. Like a vacation in a glass, my Mozzafiato is an illustration of the versatility of Mionetto's flavours and mouthfeel as they lend very well to tropical flavours. Cheers!
