FINALIST

Rootside by Jacopo Correnti

Once upon a time...

A planet, a planet call Earth.

For thousands of years people were thinking to improve the life-style, changing trees to skyscrapers and country-side to metropolis. People were selfish more and more everyday, social media created a new illusion worlds, fake worlds;

2025 is the actual deadline for a not coming back point of the planet.... that planet where we are living now,

So if I’m here writing down, spending a bit of my time to created a cocktail and telling you a story it’s because the world is stIll alive!

And with this cocktail presentation, using re-usable flask and fresh ingredients, also the bar can help to save what we have.

I would like to make you feel sensible and start to think about small things for the sustainability of this world.... a world call Earth!

Born In Harbor by Alessandro Governatori

For this drink, i got the ispiration from my first diktamo taste experience, a long time travel that let me back in time, to my first experiences, when my grandfather, that is my mentor, was teaching me first steps to venture in mixology world.

My grandfather born in 1936, he alredy making cocktails and drinks in 1961 and the thing he loved most was the Rhubarb, i mean, the rhubarb base aperitives.

After the first step, the Diktamo with is earthy notes of roots, let me came back in mind the first thing that i learned and tasted from my grandfather, the shaken rhubar, and then i decided the Diktamo was made it for me and my drink.

The apple from trentino, gives a lovely fine sweetnes and gets fresh my cocktail, while the dry sherry balance it with its acidity.

A Rich taste, enjoyable made with few and easy ingredients.

Born in Harbor shows that the first experiences are the most significant ones, we have to remember them, and continue to do what we love with passion and determination.

These are the things that push us to become who we want and remind us how much beautiful this profession is.

Tree to Drink by Corey Squarzioni

“Tree to Drink”. As you can guess from the name, i wanted to create a drink ispired by all the components of a tree, taking ispiration from the main ingredient of my drink, the Mastic.

Suze, a liquor made from gentian root, represents the roots, the part in the ground to keep the tree firmly on the ground. The Mastic represents the trunk, the “soul” of our tree, the most important part that grows and rises upwards. The rose liquor represents the final part of our tree, the results obtained, which are the flowers. Finally, an elderflowers flavoured tonic top to complete our “Tree to Drink”. As decoration an edible flower. Easy to make and replicate, built directly into the glass, four ingredients, no homemade. Clear and Limpid. Cheers!
