Refreshing cocktails created by Galvanina with autumn color and seasonal ingredients
Filled with the colors of autumn and bursting with seasonal ingredients like gooseberries and apples, these cocktails were created by Galvanina, Italy’s famed bottled mineral water company who created the only USDA-Certified Organic Italian soda in the USA.
Galvanina’s R&D team worked with young Italian barmen to create low alcohol cocktails packed with interesting flavors. Featuring Galvanina’s outstanding sodas – made with Italian passion from tree-ripened, organically grown Mediterranean fruit. Each simple-to-make cocktail is low in alcohol making them light as well as refreshing.
