Cocktail of the day: The Venetian  

A few years ago I had the pleasure of visiting a beautiful area in South Tirol (northern Italy) with some friends, while there they introduced me to an amazing cocktail: The Venetian!!!!  We lounged by the lake, by the pool and at our traveling residence sipping these wonderful drinks (very regularly).  Every time I have one, I am instantly transported back to the warm days and scenic landscapes of vineyards and mountains in the distance. It is a lovely summer beverage and is refreshing and tasty.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have for the last 7 years (from the months of May until September I keep all ingredients to make it in hand).  Cheers!!!!

  • Cup of ice
