GELATO DRINKS

Gelato drinks are perfect for an aperitif with a summery feel. They feature a delightful blend of artisan gelato and one or more alcoholic or alcohol-free ingredients.

The deliciously fresh taste sensations of gelato drinks make them hugely popular with all fans of cocktails with unconventional textures and flavours.

Due to the nature of gelato, it can be used instead of ice and keep drinks at a consistent, cool and pleasant temperature.

Gelato is renowned as an exceptional source of nourishment that everyone loves. It is often eaten as an afternoon snack or instead of a main meal, but it can also be a great sales opportunity to recommend artisan gelato to the customers of your gelato parlour as an ingredient for pre- or post-dinner cocktails.

What are the main ingredients that you need to make a gelato cocktail? First of all, the cornerstones are some good artisan gelato and an ingredient that adds flavour and colour to the drink. The latter can be alcoholic or alcohol-free. The options include liqueurs, alcoholic bagna products, fruit concentrates, juices and toppings.

It does not take a big investment to make gelato drinks. All you need is some relatively simple equipment that is easy to find, such as an electric blender or a milkshake mixer.

Gelato drinks are easy to make and they have a striking appearance thanks to their colours - which can be bright or more subtle - and the fruit decorations that you can add using your imagination. They are unquestionably innovative and fashionable products that attract a certain type of customer.

Gelato drinks can also be served as original desserts in wine glasses or tumblers. If you choose to take that approach, robust flavours such as chocolate, hazelnut and pistachio can be combined with solid ingredients such as dry biscuits or sponge cake…

Here are two delicious recipes to present to your customers, because the versatility, freshness and tasty delights of gelato drinks mean that they are bound to be a big hit!
