Christmas is a time for friends and family, and if your family and friends are anything like ours, they're often to be found glass in hand! Italian cocktails have taken the world by storm in recent years. It's hard to imagine a time when the finest bars didn't serve Negroni and Spritz. This wicker hamper is filled with some of our most exciting Italian concoctions and infusions, with a bottle of Prosecco (an essential ingredient in many recipes), so the next party or family gathering can be an altogether more lavish affair. Who needs Buck's Fizz when there's Cynar Spritz? (Don't worry, we've included a card with some of our favourite easy-to-make cocktail recipes!)
- Aperitivo Americano, Cocchi (750ml) A secret blend of herbs and spices are used to infuse Moscato wine which is then fortified. Bitter notes mingle with sweet honey and citrus flavours.
- Vermouth Storico Di Torino, Cocchi (750ml) Aromas of singed orange peel, vanilla and caramel. The best Vermouth we've ever tasted and unbeatable in a Negroni or Manahattan.
- Prosecco Frizzante (750ml) A gently sparkling, easy-drinking prosecco.
- Cynar (700ml) Created in 1952, Cynar is an infusion of 13 herbs and plants, the most dominant of which is artichoke extract. Cynar falls into the category of Italian 'Amari' and can be served neat or used to create our famous Cynar Spritz.
