Review:

Many may look at the ingredients in this cocktail and come to the conclusion that it should be stirred. It is classically shaken and is all the better for the added invigoration and dilution. I've respected the ingredients of the contemporary version of this cocktail but the proportions are by yours truly.

History:

Meaning 'blue angel' in Italian, Angelo Azzurro was originally created in 1980 by Giovanni "Mammina" Pepè in Rome, Italy and comprised gin, triple sec and blue curaçao. Some 40 years after its creation, this Italian classic was updated with the addition of balancing Bitter Bianco by Nick Palmeri at Gaetano's Ristorante in Henderson, Nevada, USA.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.7 standard drinks
  • 24.49% alc./vol. (48.98° proof)
  • 23.3 grams of pure alcohol
