A veritable palate-cleanser: crisp, cooling like marble, almost flinty and savoury. Decorated with diced lime, lemon, orange and a zigzag of bay leaf to create a jazzy terrazzo effect, this fizzy aperitivo uses Cocchi Americano, a bitter Italian aperitif wine with citrus and herbal flavours – making it the perfect start to any bunga bunga party…

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
crushed ice
small segments lime, lemon, orange
1/2 part gin
1 part cocchi americano
2 parts sparkling wine
paper drinking straw
bay leaf

Method

  1. Half fill a highball or other tall glass with ice, adding small segments of lime, lemon and orange as you go to mimic terrazzo.
  2. Pour in the gin, Cocchi Americano and sparkling wine and stir well.
  3. Top up with more ice and citrus segments.
  4. Add a straw and finish your drink with a bay leaf garnish, decoratively cut with a pair of scissors to a design of your choice – we normally go for a zig-zag.
