Trip to Venice

Try some Clooney Cocktails

By Anita Draycott

No wonder George Clooney chose romantic Venice as the venue for his marriage to Amal. Who would not be seduced by this fantastic mirage rising like a Venus from the lagoon? I happened to be in La Serenissima last fall when gorgeous George got hitched. Alas, my invitation to their wedding must have been lost in the mail.

George and Amal’s wedding reception was held at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani on Guidecca Island so I dropped by for a Clooney-inspired libation. The “Goodnight Amigos,” served at the nuptials, was created by the actor and head bartender of the hotel’s Gabbiano Bar. It contains Clooney’s own Casamigos tequila, cranberry juice, bitters, lime, sugar, cucumber peel and a slice of fresh ginger. This refreshing confection costs about €20 so savour slowly and enjoy the fantastic view and garden setting.
