Peter Said “Mamma Mia!”
Yield: 1 Serving
Peter Said “Mamma Mia!” is the perfect marriage between Ditta Artigianale’s signature espresso blend and the aromatic notes pronounced in the Peter in Florence gin. A riff on the cold brew tonic, this cocktail will delight you with its bright citrus notes that complement the 14 different botanicals that compose the gin all while being lifted with a bold, but perfectly balanced espresso. The coffee float on top also creates a mesmerizing layered effect in the glass, which is sure to wow any and all who have the pleasure to enjoy this special cocktail. Salute from the Ditta and Peter teams!
