Drinkville collection, called “Let`s talk at home”, includes two popular classical cocktails: Negroni (gin, red vermouth and Campari) and Boulevardier (bourbon, red vermouth and Campari), and also one signature cocktail called Caneflower made of rum, Aperol and elderberry syrup.

However, all you need to do is just to add ice and a piece of orange. Couriers are ready to deliver cocktails to any address in Kyiv at any moment from 10 AM till 11 PM.
