Introducing Basil Smash: A Flavorful Journey to Italy with Mamma Roma

We’re excited to introduce our latest creation, the Basil Smash cocktail, a unique blend of flavors that takes you on a journey to the heart of Italy.

At Mamma Roma, we pride ourselves on our commitment to authentic Italian tastes. Our Basil Smash is no exception, featuring our very own pizza-infused gin. Served with a selection of quintessential Italian ingredients – oregano, tomato, rosemary, paprika, and olive oil, this gin offers a delightful base for the cocktail.

Make sure you try it next time you pay us a visit in Gent or Brussels. But we’ll let you in on a little secret! We are happy to share our recipe with you here on our website for you to make this summery delight at home. At Mamma Roma we are all about sharing! If something is this tasteful, why keep it to yourself right? 

The only secret ingredient that you can not do without is our Mamma Roma Pizza gin, available in every restaurant!
