Taormina is home to one of Sicily’s most beautiful beaches, Isola Bella. This rocky beach with crystal clear water is connected via a narrow strip of land to a tiny island and is surrounded by a number of resorts and private beach clubs. We spent our day at Isola Bella at La Plage Resort’s beach club sipping on cocktails and people watching between refreshing dips into the sea. The resort was kind enough to share this Sicilian cocktail recipe for what we think is a very unique gin cocktail.
