GIN PROVED (1)
This twist on classic skillfully combines two flavors to the antipodes.
The unmistakable floral notes of violet buds and petals blend in the acrid notes of gin with a balanced result that makes this cocktail suitable for the most diverse occasions.
A quote from 1928 reads: "Gin, a hint of lemon and soda".
The 1953 description in Raymond Chandler's novel "The Long Goodbye" stated that "a real gimlet is half gin and half lime juice and nothing else"; just as the 1930 "Savoy Cocktail Book" suggests.
VODKA SOUR (1)
The category of sour is one of the oldest in the history of cocktails, indeed it can be said that it represents the starting point for the art of mixing. Sour are a very simple balance: a sweet part (usually sugar syrup), a bitter part from lime or lemon juice and a distillate that gives character to the mix.
GARDEN OF RUSSIA (2)
This twist on classic is evocative both for its name and for its taste: in fact, the cocktail immediately transports us to a place as unusual as magical, a flower garden of cold Russia.
