I had the pleasure and honor to be chosen as one of the guests at the best event of all the fashion weeks, with an atmosphere such as “The Great Gatsby” at the party Bacardi Limited event to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Martini, we’ve seen guests from all over the world, all getting there to have fun and to celebrate the brand that has become internationally renowned leader in vermouth and italian sparkling, best-selling in the world.
The gala was held in the spectacular Villa Erba in Cernobbio with a long red carpet leading into the gardens of the sumptuous lounges overlooking the beautiful Lake Como.
To celebrate its half century of history, that represent the joy of italian living.
For the occasion they were created, both within and outside the villa, some environments inspired to the Martini’s terraces (Martini terrace is the first of 1948 on the Champs Elysées in Paris) where they were served different themed cocktails such as the Drink tribute “Terrazza Martini Royale” sophisticated taste-based Martini Martini prosecco and white or rosé served with ice, a dash of lime and a sprig of mint.
The soirée was even more magical with the melodies ’20s Italian Film Orchestra, and with live performances of Lily Allen and Chilly Gonzales who performed on a floating stage in front of all of us guests, who sipped at the same time all types of Maritni one after another.
I must say that until last night I had tasted only a very small part of what the world of Martini has to offer, you can make so many different Martini cocktails that are really of all types and that really satisfy all tastes. There were of course some experts bar-mans that with stunts and games at the highest level with glasses and bottles, were making the people going crazy.
I want very much want to thank The Bacardi Company and Martini for this amazing and superb experience.
