When the Zibibbo grape was featured by Florence Fabricant in the NYTimes, we were inspired. We were so inspired that we invented a one-of-a-kind drink: The Zibibbo Citrus Cocktail. It is buonissimo. We served it at a very special Sicilian dinner that we hosted in our warehouse. It was a big hit.
We originally choose not to add ice, as to not make the cocktail exceedingly cold. But for summer, we will add a few ice cubes. It is sweet with delightful bitterness, complemented by an exotic tangy flavor.
A perfect aperitivo!
