The Venetian

A perfect combination of two Italian spirits that evokes the streets of Venice

This cheeky number come from the mixologists at the Verve Lounge, a new cocktail bar on Mailbox canal that opened last month in the home of the old Bobby Brown’s nightclub. The Venetian takes the Spritz to a whole new level by combining two key Italian spirits and showcasing how they can sing a song that will fill the streets of Venice. But as always, please enjoy responsibly.
