Biscotti di Ceglie


Inspired by my love for travel, food, and mixology, this cocktail is a tribute to a moment I had while exploring southern Italy. Amidst the charming ambiance of a café, I discovered biscotti di Ceglie, a delightful treat harmonizing the flavours of cherry, almond, coffee and lemon. This culinary delight inspired me to craft a cocktail that would echo its essence. Bourbon is the perfect base spirit for this pastry-inspired cocktail, as the smooth vanilla and caramel notes blend elegantly with the beautiful flavours of biscotti di Ceglie, sending me back to a nostalgic moment that I will cherish forever.

1oz Bourbon
