  • Cocktail Name: The Great Cortado
  • Bartender: Mirko Sacco
  • Venue/Bar: Novikov Restaurant & Bar
  • Location: 50a Berkeley Street, Mayfair, W1J 8HA

Novikov combines cool and contemporary interiors with superb food. Located in the heart of Mayfair, it has, in addition to two distinct restaurants, a stylish Lounge Bar which is a real destination, with an extensive cocktail menu, live music and performances by some of the world’s top DJs.

Mirko Sacco believes in the Japanese philosophy of ichi-go ichi-e, “one time, one meeting”, a way of thinking that treasures meeting with people, and a perfect guide for a career in hospitality. He creates drinks without compromise, always adding a touch of something personal from his eclectic background.

Mirko’s range of experiences shows in The Great Cortado, which combines Distil No. 9 vodka, persimmon purée, Palo Cortado sherry from Spain and a touch of Amaretto di Saronno from his native Italy. It is served with a foam of orange and Palo Cortado, and topped with carob powder.
