NEW YORK FOLLOWED BY MOSCOW FOLLOWED BY DUBAI. THEN I SHOULD CALM DOWN FOR THE RITZ OPENING
The Sorrentino cocktail was invented in 2013 in the Hotel Vittoria Excelsior for Guido Fiorentino. Created in the pool bar, it immediatly became the Number One cocktail around the pool. Everyone would end up enjoying one. Perhaps part of its success was the food pairing with sole in a butter sauce served in tapas form.
Surely Limoncello of Sorrento and Prosecco was an established cocktail? A look through the internet pages established the contrary. Limoncello with Champagne in a Champagne glass and a small mention of lemoncello and Prosecco in an old fashioned glass barely shone through the screen.
In 2014 the Sorrento cocktail appeared again in the Cipriani Hotel Venise. Walter Bolzanella, the Head Bartender had never heard of it but was willing to give it a try. Again to his astonishment the cocktail was selling all over the beautiful Cipriani terrasse.
