/ K&S Media

THE ITALIAN DRINK PANTRY

Strong flavours inspired by Mediterranean roots

Luxardo cherries

The original cocktail garnish, made from Italian marasca cherries, which become sweet and sticky from maceration.

Sparkling Soda

Carbonated beverages lighten strong drinks, adding a refreshing sparkle.  Great for mocktails.

Blood Orange

Sicily, in southern Italy is famous for these sweet citrus distinguished by their magenta-sepia flesh.

Amaro Nonino Quintessentia

Grappa-based (grape must brand) digestif made in northern Italy from a blend of herbs, spices and roots.

Dreamliner

The combination of bitter Amaro and Aperol is offset by sweet whisky and cherry juice, a play on the paper plane.

1 ½ oz. bourbon

1 ½ oz. Amaro Nonino

½ oz. Aperol

½ oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp. amorino cherry juice

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, and pour into two martini glasses.  Garnish with an amorino cherry and lemon peel.
