I don’t know about you but I am ready for a trip. Sometimes just a cocktail can do this trick of transporting me.
Here’s one of my favorite Italian twist cocktails. It’s one I discovered and wrote about in my book Cocktail Italiano.
Truly an inspiration, give it a try.
You can pick up a copy of my Cocktail Book here. Cocktail Italiano is a book that is filled with recipes and great travel guide will take you to the Italian Riviera anytime.
This is a cocktail that has become very popular all along the Riviera. Substituting beer for the soda makes this a very refreshing summer choice. It was created in Milan for the opening of the Trussardi Flagship Store by resident bartender Tommaso Cecca. Perfect for a sweltering summer evening. I love it.

1 ½ ounces sweet vermouth

*Note For a lighter Americano feel free to pour 2 ounces of the beer in to the cocktail as well. However, this should be done before you top the cocktail with the foamUncategorized :
