I’ve been lucky enough to go a lot of places, drink a lot of things in my time, but the one place I’ve always wanted to go to is Caffé Giacosa.
The birthplace of the Negroni.
Never been, but I’ve always dreamt of it. I imagine it’s on the corner of a sun-drenched piazza, people sit, observe, plan, think, probably smoke … what next, where next .. maybe one more negroni.. then we’ll go.
This drink takes the bright and refreshing sunshine flavours of Pink Grapefruit and Blood Orange, enriches them with a touch of Campari and Amer Picon and then finishes withs a with a swirl of fragrant smoke.
