SET #1 

COCKTAIL PAIRING: Capistrano Cosmo
Bold and beautiful! This Italian take on the familiar cosmo is the perfect complement to the quintessentially dramatic music of Verdi! 

Libiamo - La Traviata, Verdi
Stride la vampa - Il trovatore, Verdi
 Sempre libera - La Traviata, Verdi
De’ miei bollenti spiriti - La Traviata, Verdi
Di Provenza - La Traviata, Verdi


SET #2 

COCKTAIL PAIRING: Bella Floria
For the "diva" in all of us! Combining the florals of Italian-sourced lavender and Aria Rosé, this drink is as striking as Puccini's iconic heroine, Floria Tosca!

Vissi d’arte - Tosca, Puccini
Se tu sapessi gli oggetti strani - Il Tabarro, Puccini
E fra quest’ansie - Pagliacci, Leoncavallo
E lucevan le stelle - Tosca, Puccini
Flower Duet - Madame Butterfly, Puccini


SET #3 

COCKTAIL PAIRING: Blueberry Bloodhound
With the flavors of blood orange, rye, and a dash of Sexy Bitters, danger lurks around every corner -- not unlike these perilous opera plots!

Pres dès remparts de Séville - Carmen, Bizet
Salut, demure chaste et pure - Faust, Gounod
Mab, la reine des mensonges - Roméo et Juliette, Gounod
Amour, ranime mon courage - Roméo et Juliette, Gounod
Au fond du temple saint - Les pêcheurs de perles, Bizet

SET #4

COCKTAIL PAIRING: Midnight Mocha
Just like this enchanting music, this blend of coffee-infused vodka, cold brew, and a hint of chocolate is a mesmerizing - but energizing - end to the night! Perhaps the evening is just getting started...

I want magic - A Streetcar Named Desire, Previn
Al pensar en el dueño - Las hijas de Zebedeo, Chapí
Over my head/Fix my Jesus - Spiritual
Bella figlia dell’amore - Rigoletto, Verdi
