Gianluca's Cocktail Recipe
This is a spin on a truly classic cocktail. To compliment the smooth yet savory notes of the Mionetto Proscecco I partnered it with the tast of fresh strawberry. This not only complimneted the freshly squeezed lemon juice but helped bring refresging flavor to the palette.
1oz Hendrick’s Gin
1oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1oz Strawberry Simple Syrup
4 oz Mionetto Prosecco
Garnished with Lemon Brine and Strawberry Rose
What inspired the drink?
I truly love classic cocktails. By simply adding a complimenting flavor to the drink it can provide a fresh new spin and attractiveness. Inspired by Mother's Day, I wanted to create something that all the mothers out there can truly enjoy. I wanted to add something to Mionetto's Prosecco notes of apricot and honey without overpowering the rest of the drink. Strawberry was a perfect partner for exactly this and provided a beautiful rose color to the cocktail. Not only was it an ABSOLUTE HIT all weekend, but is something I can see being added to summer cocktail menus across the city.
