As you can probably imagine, travel inspires me a lot when i’m creating my drinks, ‘La Dolce Vita’ was the first cocktail to appear on my menu at Le Colomba and is a homage to my time in Italy before i arrived in Corsica.
It’s an adaptation of a drink that I made at one of my first competitions back in the UK, and for me, is the taste of Italy. It’s fresh, complex, with a marriage of iconic Italian liqueurs, and Campari providing a wonderful bitter backdrop to the sweetness of the Abricot.
