Via Carota Launches Sparkling Cocktails Range

Via Carota Sparkling Cocktails

West Village restaurant Via Carota has added to its pre-bottled drinks line with the launch of a sparkling cocktail range

Last year, James Beard award-winning chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sod rolled out a line of bottled craft cocktails from their West Village restaurant, Via Carota. Now, the Lower Manhattan food and drink makers are back with a new range of single-serve, ready-to-pour Via Carota sparkling cocktails.

The rocket-like rise of pre-bottled, ready-to-serve, or whatever you want to call the pre-made cocktails, over the past few years has been a bit staggering, but in the time of canned cocktails galore shouldn’t be too surprising. After all, getting high-grade drinks made by the world’s top culinary and mixology professionals instead of giant conglomerates looking to cash in on springtime strolls through the park or summer picnics seems like a good thing, and in many cases it is.

The new Via Carota Sparkling Range features five 11% ABV cocktails in 200ml bottles:

  • Negroni Sbagliato: A bubbly riff on the classic Negroni, combining citrus and orange peel with herbaceous wine notes, for a long and fresh, effervescent finish.
  • White Negroni Sbagliato: A charming twist on the modern classic, this refreshing cocktail substitutes a white aperitivo in place of the traditional red, harmoniously marrying bitter and sweet for a complex cocktail.
  • Spritz: Vibrant in color, this bright, bittersweet, and zesty cocktail is approachable and full-flavored with complex herbal notes.
  • Paloma: Citrus notes and bespoke Blanco tequila combine sweet, sour and a touch of bitter for a bold cocktail with a crisp and bright finish.
  • French 75: A bright and complex classic with delectable notes of citrus and elderflower for a crisp and vibrant finish.

“We couldn’t be happier to share these sparkling expressions with consumers, just in time for summer,” says Chief Executive Officer, Bart Silvestro. “Via Carota Craft Cocktails was designed to elevate the at-home cocktail experience, and after the tremendous growth seen with the core range over the last year, this carefully crafted lineup pays homage to classic sparkling cocktails, with the bar-quality liquid that has become synonymous with our unique chef-to-shelf brand.”

The Via Carota Craft Cocktails Sparkling Range can be purchased as a 10-pack for $69 via the brand’s official website, or as a 4-pack at select retailers for $24.99.
