Kytaly has launched a brand new cocktail program spearheaded by gifted bartender and entrepreneur, Giancarlo Mancino. The new cocktails are designed to complement the award-winning pizzas and fresh Mediterranean produce served at Kytaly.
In January 2009, Mancino opened an international beverage consulting company GiancarloBAR Ltd. (giancarlomancino.com), gaining prestigious clients such as the Four Seasons, Shangri-La and Rosewood Hotels. In 2010, his company branched out to Asia to consult for Michelin 3-star 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana Hong Kong & Shanghai and Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, among others.
Using fresh seasonal ingredients, Giancarlo Mancino has crafted 10 new cocktails to debut on the menu. Some highlights include the Martiniano, a sweet concoction of London Dry Gin, Mancino Vermouth, Secco, lemon oil and Japanese wakamomo peaches, and the Negroncino, Mancino’s take on the modern Negroni, created with Amalfi Gin, Mancino Vermouth Rosso, Chinato, Campari Bitter, Rinomato Aperitivo, Americano and Artemisia after being preserved in a clay pot for 48 hours. All new cocktails are priced at HK$108 each, and are available daily from 12pm onwards.
