Shaken but not Stirred

SHAKEN but not stirred – that was how local man Massimo Lisi felt when he heard that he had won a national cocktail competition.

The almond flavoured "Amaretto Di Saronno" liqueur launched the competition in a UK trade magazine asking entrants to concoct a passion-themed cocktail for Valentine’s Day. And Massimo won the prize of a trip for two to Milan, as well as £500 spending money with his simple but delicious combination of ingredients.

Massimo runs L’Aperitif Restaurant in Stranraer and last year completed a Higher National Diploma in hospitality management to add to his many industry accolades. And by mixing the sweet flavour of Amaretto with a dry sherry he beat off runners-up from Edinburgh and Birmingham to win the competition.

Naming his creation "Ti Ammo" also proved a clever move for Massimo – as well as combining the names of the two main ingredients, it is Italian for "I love you" and obviously ties in rather well with the Valentine’s Day theme the competition organisers had in mind..
