Two Tuesdays ago, I went over to Bergamot for drinks. For my first cocktail, I asked Kai Gagnon to make me the Elizabetta from the cocktail menu. When I inquired about the name, Kai explained that it is a reference to one of the daughters in the Nonino family that Paul Manzelli, the head bartender, has a crush on. Kai mentioned that her name is actually spelled "Elisabetta" but the other spelling variation won out. Previously, the drink had gone through a few metamorphoses including being the Union (after nearby Union Square) which contained Punt e Mes instead of one of the liqueurs.
