Falling For You Cocktail

Be careful not to fall too hard, this cocktail could have you riding the waves and bracing for the falls, taking you back to nature, with a sensation of fresh wonder and natural beauty.

Crafted with a First Date Prosecco from Ruggeri and a Welsh Dry Gin from Aber Falls, along with some flowery help from Nurtured In Norfolk.

The Prosecco

Deeply rooted in the tradition of winemaking, the history of Ruggeri Winery began in 1950, founded by Giustino Bisol and his cousin, whose surname, Ruggeri, they adopted the name of as part of the brand for their company.

In the early days, Ruggeri was one of only a handful of producers around Valdobbiadene focused on sparkling wine. Giustino’s son Paolo and granddaughter Isabella have since taken the company forward with the same pioneering spirit.
