This whirlwind world culinary tour has us a tad dry. Let's hit up Italy for a cocktail via Bon Appetit.
The Milano-Torino, an old-school Italian concoction named for the origins of its two main ingredients—Campari from Milan and Cinzano vermouth from Turin—became so popular with visiting Americans during Prohibition that it was renamed the Americano. Be a patriot: Rediscover a classic!
3 tablespoons Campari
1 1/2 tablespoons Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
1 1/2 tablespoons Cinzano Rosso Vermouth
1 orange twist and/or lemon wedge
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add Campari and Vermouths. Top with club soda; garnish with an orange twist or lemon wedge, or both. Serve with a straw.
I think I'll have a few of these before our next stop. We cross the pond, tomorrow, for English Onion Soup with Sage and Cheddar to usher in the Epiphany, or Twelfth Night as they call it in the UK. More on that on Freestyle Friday.
