North Italia Launches New “Summer Sips” Cocktails & Happy Hour to Go

June 29, 2023

North Italia is celebrating the season with its Summer Sips campaign featuring 14 limited edition cocktails created by the restaurant’s top bartenders across the country from East to the West Coast, in addition to debuting a limited-time Happy Hour cocktail and food-to-go menu. 

Priced at $15 each, these four bevies were thoughtfully created by North Italia mixologists from across the country who drew inspiration from classic cocktails like the Blue Hawaiian, Vodka Gimlets, and Whiskey Sours––drinks the team has been enjoying since their 21st birthday as a cheeky nod to North Italia turning 21 this year. Below is an overview of the cocktails which are available for dine-in only through September 4:
