Is This The Garden of Eden? Close–It’s the Blooming Cocktail Trees at Bottiglia Cocina Enoteca
They say the higher the tower, the closer to the gods, which must be why the new Blooming Cocktail Trees at Bottiglia are heavenly. These beautiful bounties of four-tiered cocktails surrounded by flowers and greenery seem to be aesthetically arranged by actual angels, with Instagramability off the charts. These drink specials look like they are straight out of a fairytale wedding where the king sprang for a high-end, premium bar. In addition to blooming cocktail trees’ photo worthiness is their affordability and deliciousness: each tree comes with 4 cocktails in three available flavors for only $49!
Sometimes you just need a fresh, clean start no matter the season. The Cucumber Spritzer is exactly that with Casamigos Blanco Tequila, Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup, Dashes of Celery Bitters, Cucumbers, and Fever Tree Cucumber Tonic. Pair these with Oysters on the Half shell for a crisp little bite that will accentuate the fresh taste. If you’re at Bottiglia for a boozy brunch, the Acai Granola Bowl will suit the light-bodied Cucumber Spritzer to a tee.
Are you looking for a tiny dose of tartness with undertones of sweetness? The Hibiscus Paloma is just the ticket! Made with Casamigos Blanco Tequila, Hibiscus Syrup, Fresh Lime Juice, Grapefruit Fever Tree Tonic, Hibiscus Salt, and then completed with a sugar rim, this fresh-looking flower ironically packs a tangy taste. To compliment, order the Zucchini Flowers and–if brunching–some fresh fruit. Then you’ll have the flower look and taste with the unique added picker of the hibiscus.
The darker the berry, the sweeter the juice, add in tequila, and that’s quite some booze! If you’re jonesing for fruity, then the Blackberry Mule is the flavor for you. A mix of Casamigos Blanco Tequila, Blackberries, Lime Juice, Fever Tree Ginger Beer, and hints of sage makes this Blooming Cocktail Tree the dark and mysterious one of the group. It’s strong enough to highlight a basic brunch dish class like Avocado toast without stealing the spotlight and providing a balance that is just right.
