Abstract Art Cocktail
9th March 2023
How does combining a Prosecco with a Gin which was created with the sole purpose of encapsulating Italy and accompanying Fizz sound to you? It sounds like a perfect match for me, and when looking upon some amazing Abstract Art, what could do better, enticing your aroma, palate and sight, all you need now is touch.
This is Glass of Bubbly’s Original Abstract Art, in the form of a Cocktail.
The Prosecco – Bianchin
The Vineyards of Bianchin are located in the heart of Montello, where nature and memories unite, shining light on a glorious past for the Bianchin family.
Responsible for the production of their Asolo Prosecco DOCG, the family takes great care in nurturing the vines, with the hope that the terroir of the land is captured within the fruit and that it speaks its greatness and shares its secrets in nobility and its richness in spirit.
Bianchin – Asolo DOCG Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry Millesimato – Tasting Notes
Aroma – “Soft and creamy with ripe/juicy green fruits and white pears on the aroma.”
Flavour – “Sweet and very refreshing, creamy green fruits, white pears, pear blossom, and sweet green apple syrup on the palate.”

The Gin – Due Sorelle
Due Sorelle Gin was created on a sunny afternoon in August 2019 by two sisters with the same passion to produce the ultimate Gin, inspired by their love of Italy and Fizz, they both set out to make a Gin which encapsulated their passion.
Under the sun, in the garden, the sisters were both enjoying a drink together, coming back to a regular discussion they found themselves having, “this gin is nice but just not quite what we are looking for” so after years of wanting to create their own flavour, they finally joined together on this venture and started the journey to create the ultimate Gin.
The plan was to make a gin which captured Italy in a glass and could be mixed with their other favourite tipple – Fizz!
Having the perfect idea of flavours in mind, all that was now required was to experiment to bring that image to life, finding the right balance of ingredients to deliver, and so Due Sorelle Signature was born.
I reached out to Steph and Ali, the two sisters, to ask them a couple of questions.
What Inspired Your Love of Italy? “We love the culture, passion and la dolce vita that is Italy. Which sums up the things we love and wanted to infuse into our gin.”
You Mention A Love For Fizz, How Did You Craft Your Gin To Mix With Sparkling Wine? “We needed to have a gin which was a balance of botanicals and herbs which would complement the dryness of the fizz.”
Due Sorelle – Signature Premium London Dry Gin – Tasting Notes – “Exciting lemon, thyme, rosemary and honey, with notes of cinnamon at the close.”

Abstract Art Cocktail Tasting Notes
Aroma – “United herbal characters, thyme and basil, with green fruit blossom, green fruits, dried lemons, rich golden honey and faint hints of sweet spices on the aroma.”
Flavour – “Smooth, creamy and exciting, with a creamy display of ripe pears and garden herbs, thyme/basil, dried zesty lemons and London dry gin gifting a gentle warmth to the excitement delivered by the Prosecco. Adding the Honey Syrup takes the Cocktail into a sweeter, silkier and honey-centered mix, enriching the fruits from the Prosecco, if you like it sweet, add the honey syrup.”
