ROME TO VALLETTA

Sun-drenched coastlines are lined with relics of ancient empires from Italy to Malta, from the cliffs of the Amalfi coast and the blue grottoes of Capri to the Greco-Roman ruins of Siracusa and the golden-hued churches and palazzos of Valletta. An overnight in Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples allows guests to truly take in the charms of the town and to visit the ruins of the mighty volcano, Vesuvius.

The Sbagliato, meaning ‘mistaken’ in Italian, was the result of a busy bartender who accidentally picked up a bottle of sparkling wine instead of gin when making a Negroni. The resulting cocktail was lighter, more buoyant, and refreshingly effervescent.
The Ritz-Carlton Sbagliato d’Elegance pairs bittersweet Aperol with the zesty sea spray notes of Manzanilla Sherry, and is topped with a dry Champagne. Ideal to enjoy in the Observation Lounge before dinner or as a refreshing sipper on The Marina while at anchor, the Sbagliato d’Elegance teaches us that some mistakes can lead to perfection.
This is one of the many inspired cocktails that will be handcrafted and enjoyed onboard Evrima, while sitting back on a lounger at The Pool or at a group cocktail hour from The Observation Lounge.
- 1 oz Aperol
- 1 oz Manzanilla Sherry
- 3 oz Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV
Build cocktail over rocks in glass. Stir briefly to incorporate. Garnish with orange wheel.
