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.
