Italy

A trained mixologist, Luca has built his career across bartending schools and bars in Rome and in The Netherlands.

Luca finds a bridge between Italy and Mexico in the deeply rooted drinking cultures. Tequila is as iconic of Mexico as wine it is of Italy. Once, he tried to recreate a Mexican experience for friends at home, serving a tequila paired dinner. Simply Green is inspired by that occasion, by the idea that less is more. The cocktail is low ABV to cater for drinkers worldwide, event those that are not accustomed to sipping spirits over meals. It enhances all the tasting notes of Patrón Silver using raw natural ingredients to create the final mix. Perfection lies in the unicity of the flavour combination as well as in the cocktail's link to nature.
