There is a reason why certain cocktails are called classic. But there’s an even better reason why you should make classic cocktails with an Italian twist. That reason is vinegar.

Italian vinegar in a cocktail is a secret weapon.
Basically, I desperately want to get the word out that stocking good quality vinegar in your pantry means that whenever you have a recipe that calls for an acid, like lime or lemon juice… vinegar is your loyal best friend. Instead of being 100% tart and all bitter-faced like citrus, stocking the right vinegars will give both depth and balance that marries well with spirits. It’s a simple little swap. So small that you would think that it wouldn’t make a difference. Sì, naturalmente. Yes, of course it makes a difference!
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you 3 classic cocktails with an Italian twist that I believe everyone should make the “simple little swap” to transform your new five-o’clock.
Italian Old Fashioned
I’m tickled pink over these and can’t wait for you to try them. Will you let me know what you think? I know that not everyone is not “into” cocktails, so I think that these classic cocktails with an Italian twist could easily be converted into mocktails. If this is something that interests you, please leave me a comment and I will be happy to figure it out. I mean, there is no reason to leave anyone out, right?
I’m so thankful for you and I hope you are doing well.
