COCKTAIL BOOK 101, between art and mixology – the new menu of the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte’s bar
Simone Corsini, one of the leading lights of contemporary mixology, is the new bar manager at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte in Viareggio and has put his signature to a list of innovative cocktails, which celebrate the hotel’s history and style. The number “101”, featuring in the graphics and concept of the eight cocktails (including two non-alcoholic) served at the Bar del Piccolo and on the Terrazza Maitò, marks the number of years since the Principe di Piemonte was established in 1922 and is the name of one of the cocktail specials on the list.
“I love creating my cocktails from a story to be told and an emotion to convey,” says Simone Corsini. “I use my approach to mixology to reinterpret the great classics in a modern and unexpected way by playing with sensations, shades of colour and presentation. This list also expresses my enthusiasm for non-alcoholic cocktails, which I believe should be valued as much as those containing alcohol.”
These are the eight creations taking their inspiration from magnificent features of the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte.
The fine entrance to the Grand Hotel inspired ‘Sliding Time‘, a cocktail of tropical cordial based on mango, coconut and pineapple, Italian sparkling wine and Select.
The foyer of the Grand Hotel, embellished with a floral sculpture that cascades from the ceiling of the top floor, inspired ‘Next to me‘, a mix of Ketel One Vodka, berries, citric acid and Marendry bitters.
The intimacy of the Bar del Piccolo is represented by ‘Preludio‘.
The sophistication of the veranda housing the Two Michelin Star restaurant, Il Piccolo Principe, is concentrated in ‘Imagination‘, a refreshing twist on the Paloma.
The atmosphere of the Chinese Room, with its blue tones and welcoming that is chaises longues, continues in ‘Fluctuating‘, an oriental Bloody Mary.
The room number celebrating the 101st birthday of the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte has lent its name to the cocktail, ‘101‘, which is bottled and served ice cold and is also the perfect souvenir to take home.
On the rooftop, by the pool, the view extends towards the horizon. The cocktail that recreates this atmosphere is the non-alcoholic ‘Lines‘, based on tropical juice, bitters and a pinch of mint leaves.
Finally, the splendid panorama that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, Maitò Viareggio, has inspired ‘Oltremare‘. Presented on a bed of sand and shells to reflect the view of the sea.
The bar are open to guests staying at the hotel and, subject to availability, also to non-residents.
