Summer Cocktails At Capella Bar

Here at the Breidenbacher Hof’s Capella Bar there is always a new cocktail to try.  Recently, a regular guest sat at the bar and observed as Marc, our mixologist, concocted his newest summer cocktails.  Marc, seeing the guest’s interest, invited him to try one of his creations and provide feedback.  Together Marc and the guest adjusted the cocktail until both agreed the perfect summer cocktail had been created.

The cocktail, named Limón à la Romana after the helpful guest, is now a featured cocktail on the menu.  And lucky for you, I have secured the secret recipe!


Limón à la Romana


  • 4cl Adler Gin
  • 1cl Dom Benedictine
  • 1cl Limoncello
  • 1cl sugar syrup
  • 2cl lemon juice
  • Some sage leaves


Put everything except for the sage leaves into a Boston Shaker and add some ice cubes. Pluck the sage leaves into small pieces and mix them together with the rest of the ingredients into the shaker. You will see that the leaves are very small right now but will develop a wonderful aroma.

If you ask me, the prettiest way to present the drink is a cocktail glass. Strain the mixed liquid into a pretty glass and garnish simply with a sage leaf.

Finally, the most important thing: Enjoy your great summer drink!

I can’t wait to get your feedback!
