Celebrate Thanksgiving in style with three cocktails from Hotel STARLINO

    Hotel STARLINO Vermouth and Aperitivos are the perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving and will keep the festive mood going all day long.  The Hotel STARLINO range of Vermouth and Aperitivos hail from Torino, Italy – the birthplace of Vermouth. Launched recently in the US they make for fabulous cocktails and with only 17% ABV are a great low alcohol alternative to the classic cocktail.

    STARLINO Rosso is a classic “Vermouth di Torino” made from a blend of Italian wines and blended with a careful selection of botanicals including wormwood, bitter orange and cloves before it is aged in Bourbon Barrels for six months to give a rich, spicy, vanilla flavour.

    STARLINO Rosé is a delightful and refreshing aperitivo, made by blending Rosé wine, spirit, pink grapefruit peel, orange peel and 8 other botanicals. At 17% alcohol, both drinks in the Hotel STARLINO range capitalize on the trend for lower alcohol cocktails.

    STARLINO Maraschino Cherries are de-stoned, plump, ruby red cherries made from Italian Marasaca Cherries which produce a small “pop” after every bite, with a distinct sweet cherry flavour experience. STARLINO Maraschino Cherries are the perfect bartender-standard cocktail garnish for Manhattans or Negronis and are delicious drizzled over ice cream or cheesecakes for a decadent Thanksgiving dessert.
