The Password for Unique Summer Cocktails is…Gio

Prohibition may have ended in 1933, but prohibition-style cocktails are making a comeback. In 1919, the US government created a law, which criminalized the manufacture and sale of alcohol for 13 very — very— long years. Prohibition resulted in a stratospheric rise of bootlegging and some very innovative new cocktails. To mask the unpleasant taste of bootlegged spirits, Prohibition-era bartenders were required to get a bit creative. They mixed in sweeteners, bitters and other flavor-enhancers, and a world of new cocktails was born. Some of these cocktails have fallen by the wayside. Others have stepped back into the spotlight, thanks to a recent rise in speakeasy-style bars across the world. Gio is embracing this new fad in mixology with our own Prohibition-style Italian Martini, La Cola Nostra, unique cocktail that celebrates the sweet and bitter combination of flavors that characterized jazz-era cocktails. La Cola Nostra (Italian prohibition-style martini) Amaro Averna, Gosling’s Black Rum, lemon, lime, simple syrup, sparkling wine

Our Seasonal Cocktails

Spring Mimosa Sparkling white wine, Aperol Italian orange liqueur The mimosa is a refreshing springtime favorite! We put a Gio spin on this classic by substituting Aperol Italian liqueur for the traditional orange juice. Aperol is an Italian orange liqueur. It has become Italy’s most popular light spirit. Seasonal Sangria (Red) This traditional European drink reminds us all that warmer weather is coming! Sangria is a typical beverage from Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy.  For a Gio twist, we add grapes and fresh pears! Tropical Passion-Tini OR-G tropical vodka, Absolut Citron, Champagne float as Martini This Gio original is a sexy martini with a tropical splash of OR-G tropical vodka, a tempting blend of Ultra-Premium Vodka and Persimmon mingling with Papaya, Mango and Lime Juices. Peach Cobbler Peach vodka, Peach Schnapps, Sprite in highball glass Another Gio original, the peach cobbler will make you salivate for everything Spring has to offer. The sweet flavor is a perfect toast to the warmer temperatures that will soon be embracing us. If you love all things sweet, this cocktail is sure to be an instant favorite. Cool as a Cucumber REYKA Icelandic vodka, St. Germaine Elderflower, muddled mint and cucumber This sophisticated cocktail will make you feel like you’re sitting on our patio taking in the beautiful Spring air…even if there is still snow on the ground. Cool, clear REYKA Icelandic vodka mixed with the bright and fragrant flavor of St. Germaine Elderflower and made even cooler with the addition of mint and cucumber. You can’t get any cooler than this!
