Among the attendee, there is also our skillful barman of Florian Firenze that created for this special week an exclusive cocktail:

“BRIT SeventeenTwenty”

“BRIT seventeentwenty” is a twist on a classic cocktail named “French 75” which originally was prepared with Cognac but now is mostly known for his gin-based version.

The distilled base is Sipsmith Gin and his Sloe-berries infused version. The sour element is given by lime & lemon juice paired with thyme & blueberry shrub (a syrup cut with a part of vinegar).

The “SeventeenTwenty” is referred to the year of birth of the Venetian Caffè Florian, which intercedes in the drink with his “Brut Franciacorta”.

The cocktail is thaught to be paired with traditional Tuscan cusine, often characterized by cold cuts and long cooking meats flavoured with typical local smell such as juniper, thyme and sloe berries.
