Not only does it have the most beautiful terrace in the Gulf of Poets, Venus Bar Portovenere also offers one of the most dynamic and delicious cocktail menus in the Italian Riviera between Cinque Terre and La Spezia. On the terrace embracing the view from the wild Palmaria Island to the colourful historic buildings of Portovenere, you can sip both classic drinks, innovative mocktails and original cocktails conceived by the bartenders of Venus Bar.
Some of the featured drinks this year are gin-based cocktails prepared with prestigious international brands. Here are the ingredients if you would like to prepare them at home.
