Flatiron Foodies: Solo Qui Cocktail by Obicà

Obicà's menu is based on their passion for authentic Italian cuisine designed to share amongst friends. Their menu offers fresh Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP and other imported Italian specialties that are presented in small share plates, salads, house-made pasta and pizza, fish, meat, and vegetarian entrees based on Italy's rich regional heritage.

Obicà's beverage program is based on freshness and simplicity, with all juices, syrups, and infusions made in-house using fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Beverage Director Fabrizio Argiolas has been at the helm since Obicà opened in Flatiron in 2014. For this month's Flatiron Foodies, he shares a cocktail from the summer menu.

"The pairing of sweetness and acidity of fresh pineapple juice is balanced and given complexity with the herbal notes of the sage syrup. To experience the Solo Qui (which translates to "only here"), you must visit us at Obicà." 

Obicà's Solo Qui Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces infused lemon vodka
  • 1 ounce fresh pineapply juice
  • 1 ounce citrus mix
  • 1/2 ounce sage syrup (simple syrup infused with fresh sage, then strained)
  • 1 sage leaf (for garnish)

Method: Pour into a shaker filled with ice, and shake for 10-15 seconds. Pass through a double strainer, then pour directly into a cocktail glass. Place the sage leaf in the glass as garnish.
