Created to honour the Whiskey drinking, cigar smoking Yank, Harry Pickering. Down on his luck in 1920's Venice, Pickering befriends local bartender Giuseppe Cipriani who agrees to lend him the money he needs to return home to Boston. Years later he returns to Venice and repays Cipriani threefold on the condition that he opens a bar with the money, so the legendary ‘Harry’s Bar’ is born!

The Secret Garden
Venice is a city famous for many things; stunning Architecture, culture and a rich history, to name a few. This vibrant and floral drink is inspired by one of the city’s lesser known beauties; the many breath-taking gardens that lay hidden throughout it’s labyrinth of alleyways and canals. These gardens are only able to be viewed on very rare occasions and are yet another part to the magic that is Venice.
Ingredients: Limoncello, Grappa, Crème de Violette, Elderflower, citrus, sugar
Store in the fridge; to serve pour out a small amount into a chilled champagne saucer or martini glass. Re-seal, shake bottle vigorously, pour the remainder of your drink and garnish with a lemon wheel to finish.
Here we pay homage to arguably the greatest of all cocktails, created in Florence back in 1919 by bartender Fosco Scarselli. The story goes that Count Camillo Negroni wanted Fosco to make him an aperitivo with a bit more punch than the Americano cocktails he usually drank. So out went the soda, in came the Gin and the rest is history. We’ve added another layer of complexity to this classic cocktail with some time spent in barrel. Enjoy!
