Through the words of Luca Manni- bar manager of the Gilli Paskowski, the most ancient cafe in Florence - Cocktail Estetica leads us into the universe of cocktail bars; a world where the consumers’ choices are often prompted by the drinking experience as a whole, from the design of the club to the latest social media trends.
The Internet has changed the way we choose what and where to drink, and Luca Manni knows well. One of the best known names in Italian mixology, his motto is “a drink must not only be good tasting, but also good looking”, an adage that fully expresses the core value of Bevande Futuriste : the beauty in drinking. Highly focused on the aesthetic details, his outstanding mixing style has often been praised in Italian and international specialised magazines, and had a huge influence on many famous clubs. In these pages, the Sheriff talks us through his philosophy: a trip between theory and practice, enriched by the precious contribution of renowned food photographers, designers, journalists, influencers and - of course - of some of the most popular bartenders in Italy and abroad. A real journey of discovery through the most secret, though most visible ingredient that can make the true difference for a cocktail's success: aesthetics.
