A bitter sweet quinine flavored Barolo based aromatized wine digestif, made with cinchona (china) bark, rhubarb, cardamom, gentian and other spices and botanicals. Similar to a quinquina but more bitter and complex due to the added quinine and Barolo. Different to the chinato vermouth in its deeper digestif flavors and emphasis on quinine.
Known locally as “il Specialino,” this naturally colored Americano is made with Trebbiano wine base infused with a proprietary mix of alpine herbs and spices; 17% ABV.
A Spanish sparkling wine, similar to Champagne but, well, its Spanish. The word cava means cellar in Catalan; storage in caves used to be part of the wine making process.
An orange colored citrus fruit. Many types of orange make an appearance in cocktails. The peel and juice are equally valuable to diverse cocktails.
