Italians drink with a purpose. In this wine-soaked country, no dinner is complete without a bottle of vino. But just as important to the Italian lifestyle is the Aperitivo and the Digestivo with the ever-growing popularity of Italian bitters, grappa and amari, it's officially time to expand your horizons and do as the Italians do.

THE NEGRONI ⁣
Certa recipe⁣
⁣⁣
30 ml Ginepraio Gin⁣⁣
30 ml Bitter Nardini⁣⁣
30 ml Silvio Carta Sweet Vermouth

Born at the behest of Count Camillo Negroni, once a cowboy in the American West and gambler in New York City for a time, the Milan-born Camillo returned to Florence around 1919 after the end of the First World War and during a stop at Caffè Casoni in Florence, when he asked for a bolder retelling of the Americano, with gin replacing soda water.

OUR ADVICES⁣

Tuscany Juniper is utilized in making all the most iconic London Dry Gin around the world. Ginepraio is the quintessential of the different Tuscan terroir creating a wonderful balance between savoury and herbaceous. ⁣

Very important is the marriage with the bitter: we believe Nardini Bitter recipe is elegant, smooth, herbaceous perfect for a Negroni. Vermouth is the Italian aperitif essential! There is no Negroni without vermouth. Treat your vermouth as white wine, keep it refrigerated.⁣

You can pre-batch or make it espresso but make it right by using high quality products.⁣

Garnish with friends and some snacks on the side. ⁣

Salute!
