What inspired the drink?

'Ventisette' which means 27 in Italian, celebrates Mionetto's precision + attention to detail. The 'Peaches + Cream' Liqueur has duality in its name, referencing a type of (candy) corn as well as the fresh peaches + cream of tartar (which is a bi-product of winemaking). The resulting liqueur is bright orange. The Amaretto is made from toasted peach pits, orange peels, local honey + vanilla. The orange pekoe tea adds tannins + balance. Finally Mionetto adds texture + brings the cocktail together.
