La Famiglia Inspiration

My mother is an avid red wine drinker. So much so, that she almost never drinks anything else. I wanted to create a drink that would inspire her to try new things, but also allow her to feel comfortable while she had her drink. This drink is meant to represent a glass of red wine, but allow my mum to experience different alcohol such as spirits and liqueurs without taking her out of her comfort zone.


  • Add Luxardo Marashino Originale, Red Wine reduction, Fig syrup and lemon juice to a shaker.
  • Shake hard with cubed ice, and double strain into a crystal wine glass.
  • No garnish, as the drink is supposed to represent a glass of red wine.
