Giuseppe Verdi, 1871
Aida
It recounts the love story between the princess Aida and the warrior Radames through the combination of flavours from the two different cultures: the strong, spicy aroma of Ethiopian berberè and the sweetness of Egyptian karkadè. The amber colour recalls desert sand and the yellow flower in the centre of the cup represents Ra, the Sun King.

Georges Bizet, 1874
Carmen
The flavours and aromas of the cocktail take us back to Seville; inspired by traditional Spanish sangria, the red colour and overpowering taste of Valpolicella Classico embrace the irrepressible passion of Carmen. The composition is meant to evoke the aesthetic imagery of the flamenco dancer, with draped, billowing gowns and a flower entwined in her hair.

Giuseppe Verdi, 1853
La Traviata
A spectacular cocktail by name and in fact. It is served at the table champagne-coloured, in honour of the famous cheers scene in the Parisian dehor. When served at the table, however, thanks to the addition of violet liqueur, it takes on a purplish colour in honour of the opera's protagonist name. In addition to its distinctive colour, the liqueur gives the composition a floral yet bitter note, recalling the tragic fate of the young woman.

Giuseppe Verdi, 1842
Nabucco
A tale of heart and sword, it narrates the invasion of the city of Jerusalem by the Babylonians and the love between Fenena, daughter of Nebuchadnezzar, and Ishmael, grandson of the king of Jerusalem. The cocktail is infused with cardamom, which was reportedly growing luxuriantly in the hanging gardens of Babylon. The sweet notes of green tea are combined with the intense, pungent aroma of ginger and gin.

Giacomo Puccini, 1924
Turandot
Set in Beijing, the opera tells the story of the 'princess of death', Turandot. It is a cocktail based on red fruits, evoking the sweetness of the young girl's tender age, contrasted, however, with her ruthlessness and relentlessness; the deep red colour is reminiscent of the blood of the men who fell victim to win her hand. The touch of lime and ginger is a tribute to the aromas of traditional oriental cuisine.
