Three Seasonal Italian Inspired Cocktails are Created by Gifted Mixologist William Perbellini
Bar Toscana, the popular Brentwood bar and restaurant, debuts three new fall cocktails designed by the talented William Perbellini, resident mixologist. The seasonal additions to the cocktail menu of specialty drinks include the Barrel’s Share; La Figata; and the French Quarter. Perbellini, who perfected his craft at the famed Hotel Cipriani in Venice, created the drinks to complement the extensive menu of Italian Stuzzichini, Tuscan Classics and Dolce. Samples of the Bar Toscana menu featureBeet Salad with Goat Cheese, Pickled Plums & Hazelnuts; Fresh Pea and Artichoke Salad with walnuts and ricotta salata cheese: the Stuzzichino Toscano of burrata cheese, roasted spicy pepperoni and tomato jam with Italian bread toast; Smoked Salmon with Fresh Grapefruit, asparagus, pine nuts, frisee salad and homemade breadsticks; Oven Baked Gratineed Shrimp and Calamari Skewers; Hamburger Bar Toscana – a minced angus rib-eye burger slider with truffle cheese, shallot and Parmigiano crisps; Dry Aged Rib-Eye Steak Skewers, roasted peppers, pancetta and herbs sauce and a variety of Wood Oven Fired Pizzas. Perbellini’s expertly mixed drinks pair perfectly with the menu and bring out the magnificent flavors of the fall season.
