Friday Cocktail: Solerno Serata

Solerno, the world’s first blood orange liqueur and brainchild of famed Hendrick’s Gin Master Distiller Lesley Gracie, is bringing the Italian Summer to you this season with a new range of cocktails, led by their signature serve, the Solerno Serata.

Solerno, the world’s first blood orange liqueur and brainchild of famed Hendrick’s Gin Master Distiller Lesley Gracie, is bringing the Italian Summer to you this season with a new range of cocktails, led by their signature serve, the Solerno Serata.

Solerno is encouraging cocktail lovers to try something different for the warmer months, substituting the standard spritzer or celebratory champagne for something a little more sophisticated.

The Solerno Serata is a simple but delicate sparkling cocktail, pairing Solerno with soda water, ruby red grapefruit juice, bitters and a sprig of rosemary.

For those wishing to pair Solerno with some Italian culinary delights, the Solerno Serata teams perfectly with prosciutto drizzled with rosemary olive oil, or a fresh fennel salad dressed with a squeeze of blood orange, YUM!
