Via Carota Craft Cocktail sparkling ready-to-pour cocktail lineup

Ideal for high-volume bars that serve guests with discerning tastes in ready-to-drink cocktails, Via Carota Craft Cocktails is launching a new line.

You may be familiar with Via Carota’s elegant bottle design and classic ready-to-pour drinks. However, if you’re new to this brand, they have a spectacular line of classic, premium RTDs (or RTPs, if you prefer):

  • Old Fashioned
  • Signature Manhattan
  • Signature Martini
  • Espresso Martini
  • Classic Negroni
  • White Negroni

Further, if the name seems familiar to you, there’s good reason. This line of cocktails is inspired by the West Village restaurant of the same name.

Featuring a new but no-less-elegant bottle design, Via Carota is introducing a sparkling range to their portfolio. Within this range are a Spritz, French 75, and Paloma. However, it’s the other two expressions in the line that have caught my eye.

You may recall that toward the end of 2022, a variant of a classic cocktail grabbed headlines at a furious pace. It seemed as though the Negroni Sbagliato was inescapable.

Well, that drink may not be spilling ink quite as much, but guests are still ordering it. So, Via Carota is serving up not just one but two Sbagliato variants. Alongside the aforementioned Spritz, French 75, and Paloma are the Negroni Sbagliato and White Negroni Sbagliato.

Via Carota Craft Cocktails Announces New Sparkling Range

Ready-to-serve classics with fizz include Negroni Sbagliato, White Negroni Sbagliato, Spritz, Paloma and French 75

(May 14, 2024 – New York, NY)Via Carota Craft Cocktails, the craft cocktail brand inspired by the eponymous West Village establishment, announces today a new range of single-serve, ready-to-pour sparkling cocktails.

  • 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,” said 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.”
