Harvey Darko made with Ramazzotti Amaro, maple syrup and Red Hare Watership Brown Ale
While I am not generally a beer drinker, I'm more of a hard cider girl, even I found this to be pretty palatable, perhaps due to the maple syrup, I do love syrup. The bitterness of the ale worked nicely with the slight bitterness of the chocolate and citron.
These have a pistachio filling very similar to what you might find in a cannoli, but the cornets are made with a puff pastry type dough, so it's like and flaky when you bite into it. I will admit I had to ask what was in the filling, as it was so smooth and light and didn't quite believe it could be ricotta, but in fact it was. I wish more places filled their cannoli with such a lovely filling!
Biscotti Spumanti made with housemade vanilla vodka, Faretti Biscotti Famosi liqueur, lemon juice and prosecco
This was my favorite cocktail that we tried, light, bubbly, and delicious! I could happily enjoy this with any of the desserts, or even just order one instead of dessert, if I've eaten too much of their delicious pasta for my dinner.
