Workshop Setup

In this workshop, attendees were introduced to the history and origins of the Cocktails as well as the labels of the Italian liqueur. Attendees were then introduced to Spritz, a light and easy-going Cocktail with Gajardo Triple Sec (as Bitter) and Vignalta Sirio Moscato Secco (as the Sweet). The idea of mixing these 2 is to strive a bitter-sweet balance. The amount of Soda water is up to the personal preference, as well as the Ice Cubes. According to Mattia, the perfect way of mixing Cocktails is to come out with something you like (as some like it neat, some like it diluted). The iconic Cocktail invented in Florence (Italy)- Negroni, Mattia introduced Gajardo Bitter Radicale, an Italian herb-infused Bitter Liqueur for a long-exquisite, bitter after taste. After the Workshop ended, attendees got to speak to Mattia and a simple question-and-answer session was held.
