Italian-inspired Zero-waste Summer Cocktails
Summer is approaching, and what better way to welcome it than with a refreshing cocktail menu? This year, we are introducing a new summer cocktail menu that celebrates Italian ingredients while embracing the zero-waste movement.
At the core of our new cocktail menu are Italian staples such as Aperol, Campari, and Amaretto. These ingredients are known for their distinct flavors and are perfect for creating refreshing, summery cocktails. We are also incorporating lesser-known Italian spirits like Averna and Cynar, which add depth and complexity to our cocktails.
But what sets our new cocktail menu apart is our commitment to minimizing waste. We are using a variety of techniques to ensure that we are utilizing every part of the ingredients we use, from the fruit to the herbs.
For example, we are using citrus peels to create syrups and infusions, rather than discarding them. We are also using leftover fruit pulp to create shrubs and bitters, which add a unique flavor profile to our cocktails. We are even using Lacto-fermentation to create a "funky" flavor profile in our cocktails that are perfect for sipping on a hot summer day.
One of the cocktails on our new menu is the Minerva, a twist on the classic Tom Collins cocktail that is perfect for summertime sipping. To make our version, we are using Crocodile gin, Amalfi lemon, and a homemade lacto-fermented Mirabelle plum. We are also garnishing the cocktail with a slice of cucumber, which adds a bright and refreshing touch.
Another cocktail on our menu is the Ceres, which features homemade tepache made using the skins of pineapple, along with melon, cinnamon, and a touch of honey. We are also garnishing the cocktail with a sprig of fresh mint, which adds a subtle herbal note to the drink.
Our commitment to zero waste does not stop at the ingredients we use. We are also using paper straws and wooden stirrers, and we are working with local food producers to source our ingredients whenever possible. By taking these steps, we can create delicious cocktails that are not only refreshing but also sustainable.
So, if you are looking for a new cocktail menu to try this summer, why not give our Italian-inspired, zero-waste cocktails a try? We are confident that you will love the unique flavors and commitment to sustainability that our cocktails offer.
