Italian Inspiration

Playing on the old style of Italian cocktails and the journey they took through the history of drink, starting from the fields of Italy to the speakeasies of New Orleans. The coolness and sophistication of Italian living is personified by this cocktail.


  • Add all the ingredients apart from the cucumber water into a hip flask and chill,
  • When ready to drink, simply pour cucumber water into a cup full of ice,
  • Add the contents of the hip flask,
  • Garnish with two Luxardo Maraschino Cherries and a cucumber spear.
