The temperature has dropped but the CinCin bar is heating up with the latest edition of the Marketino. This Sunday, January 27, the al fresco part of the restaurant houses two delicious gin brands, Monkey 47 and Beefeater that you can enjoy under the sun whilst the cool breeze transports you to the Amalfi coast.
Sip on fruity cocktails with a mix of Monkey 47, grapefruit, orange, lime and sage topped with sonic (soda+tonic) or order the Juniper berries, lemon and lime topped with Beefeater and sonic to accompany your order of anti- pasti. From various cheeses to cold cuts such as Parma Ham, Salami and Mortadella, make sure you leave room for their fresh hand rolled pastas and Neapolitan pizzas.
Order cicchettis while you settle in after your first drink; options include Smoked Salmon featuring home-made ricotta and dill picante sauce, Spicy Pork Sausage served with crispy potatoes and Kalamata olives; Crispy Crumbed Brie with a drizzle of truffle honey, or the ever favourite Avocado Crostini with a lemon dressing.
Whether it’s the Burrata pizza or the Lasagne E Funghi with homemade sheets layered with creamed mushrooms and Parmigiano-Reggiano, you are sure to leave the Marketino feeling happy. Or, you can always start the day on a sweet note with Traditional Tiramisu doused in a coffee liqueur sure to wake you up from your Saturday night.
