Italian Inspiration

My Italian inspiration are: - Food, Italy is one of the most famous countries where gastronomy takes place in the Italian lifestyle. Colours, flavours, shapes are on your plate, from simple to elaborate dishes. - Venetian carnival, "Serenissima Repubblica" against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162. In the honor of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. Apparently, this festival started on that period and became official in the Renaissance. Colourful masks and costumes. In the seventeenth century, the baroque carnival was a way to save the prestigious image of Venice in the world. It encouraged licence and pleasure, but it was also used to protect Venetians against the anguish for present time and future. - The sun of Italy. My cocktail is putting all those ideas in the same glass, it could please women by the delicate flavour of the clementine juice, and the sugar peas snap enhanced the flavour of Luxardo Maraschino Originale. To please the men, the spice of the gin brings a certain strength to the cocktail. A perfectly refreshing beverage.


  • Muddle sugar peas snap in the shaker,
  • Add all other ingredients and ice cubes,
  • Shake well,
  • Strain into a chilled vintage coupette,
  • Garnish with orange twist.
