Called the “Bittersweet of 1927“—This drink was entered by Thomas Sabota of 1927, Sofitel. The inspiration behind this drink? “This drink was inspired by a telegram found in the basement of our building sent in 1927 from Italy to Singapore – “If your life gets bitter, add more Campari and enjoy that bitterness with pleasure. Life is all about that, the bittersweet balance!” It’s become a personal motto of mine now, hence Bittersweet Since 1927.”
