Ciao Tutti! It’s my favorite week of the year! Negroni Week!
I love a Negroni. You could say it is one of my favorite Italian cocktails, and I have several variations in my book Cocktail Italiano , but this one is for a Negroni Sbagliato, one of my favorites from my favorite bar in Milano, Bar Basso.
What can I say about Bar Basso, that has not already been written about it? It’s the most classic Italian bar you will set foot it. Its owner is famous for this amazing cocktail which all started as a mistake, but a happy mistake and those are the best kind. In my opinion Bar Basso is what a bar should be like. It’s messy and un-kept though it’s chic decor makes it authentic, warm and friendly but still somewhat chaotic.
Great looking people of all ages congregate until late into the night. The blaring neon bar sign beacons you to cross the street and order a drink. Settle in and watch the ultimate sartorialist scene unfold. It’s quintessential Milan, Bar Basso.
You will need:
– 1 ounce sweet vermouth
– 1 ounce Campari
– 1 ounce lightly sparkling wine
– Orange slice
Combine vermouth and Campari in an ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling wine, stir to combine and garnish.
