Legend has it the Bellini was invented sometime between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. The beautiful color inspired Cipriani to name the drink Bellini after the robe of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini. Light, clean and very easy to drink this is the perfect cocktail for brunch, early evening parties, light social events and for light drinkers.

The French 75 was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris---later Harry's New York Bar---by barman Harry MacElhone. The combination was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful French 75mm field gun, also called a "75 Cocktail", or "Soixante Quinze" in French. The French 75 was popularized in America at the Stork Club in New York. An elegant drink with Gin and Champagne with a great kick it a drink that was enjoyed by the upper class elite both men and women. Shades of Downton Abbey all that is needed is lace gloves or an ascot.

The origins of the French Connection is vague but the drink is not. This is a great after dinner drink. Great for sipping with Cognac and Amaretto it counts on great ingredients instead of mixers to give it its unique taste. With drinks like this it is always best to use the best ingredients you can afford. We like Amaretto DiSaronno and Hennessey VSOP in ours. Affordable but still great quality.

Champagne Pear - While it doesn't taste very strong this cocktails has quite the bite. The pear taste is so smooth you man not notice the kick! Enjoy it is the perfect drink for friends and food.

Citrus 75 - A riff on the classic cocktail the French 75, the Citrus 75 updates the taste and mood with the hint of citrus and a float of Gin. Very refreshing and light.

Citrus Brunch - Perfect for the occasion where a lower proof is needed like, brunch or a afternoon get together. The Citrus Brunch is a light pretty drink that hits all the high citrus notes with the sparkle of Champagne.

Passion - Passion is when you blend Raspberry Vodka, Passion Fruit Juice, and Strawberry Liqueur then top with Prosecco. Great for any party or summer get together.
