Colorful tiles on the roof of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna

Vienna Media News 11/2014 150 years of the Ringstrasse – a special cocktail for a special street

Sound of the Ring is the evocative name of the winning submission which was picked from a long list of hopefuls. The recipe is the brainchild of Kan Zuo, barkeeper and owner of the Sign Lounge Bar in Vienna’s ninth district (

He wanted to create a golden drink which reflected the upscale ambience of the Ringstrasse boulevard. Zuo commented “When it comes to its flavour, Sound of the Ring could scarcely be a more upscale composition: chocolate and coffee combined with the exotic freshness of calamansi and the noble traditions of Viennese sekt making.” The new cocktail will be available at selected locations throughout the city – including on the Ringstrasse itself!

How to make the Sound of the Ring cocktail:

  • 1.5cl Broker’s Gin
  • 1cl calamansi balsamic vinegar
  • 1cl lemon juice
  • 1.5cl sugar syrup
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters
  • 7cl Schlumberger Sparkling Brut

Add all of the ingredients except the Sparkling Brut to a shaker, mix well and top up with Schlumberger. To decorate, dunk the rim of a champagne flute in Galliano Ristretto and dip in sugar.
