In celebration of the second Monaco ePrix later this week, Stars’n’Bars has created Monaco’s first eCOCKTAIL.

The 100 percent organic cocktail uses a special liqueur handmade from the fruit of the 600 bitter orange trees lining the Principality’s boulevards. Other ingredients include organic basil, freshly squeezed juice from local organic oranges and pure, naturally filtered sparking water. 

The star of the eCOCKTAIL, however, is the L’Orangerie, the only premium liqueur fabricated in Monaco and the brainchild of Philip Culazzo, a Monaco resident of Irish-Italian descent, who saw a way to recycle Monaco’s oranges, too bitter to eat, and save them from being discarded as waste.

The eCOCKTAIL will be named after Maro Engel, driving for the “hometeam” racing group Venturi Formula E because of the local Venturi connection and because the 32-year-old driver is a Monaco resident who became a Stars’n’Bars customer as a toddler.

Mr Engel is also a member of the Champions for Peace, a group of 80 famous elite athletes, including Novak Djokovic and Sergey Bubka, committed to serving peace in the world through sport, created by Peace and Sport, a Monaco-based international organisation.

Stars’n’Bars co-founder Didier Rubiolo said that it was no coincidence that the first three letters of the drink were “E-C-O” and that the restaurant would actively promote it to its ecology-minded customers. Moreover, for every eCOCKTAIL sold the restaurant will donate 1€ to the Monacology Association; whose primarily goal is to raise awareness among Monaco’s children on how to best protect our planet.

Stars’n’Bars will be entirely privatised during the ePrix, from May 10 to 13. Guests will still be able to enjoy snacks and drinks at our snack bar on the terrace, which will be transformed into an eVillage.
