Review:

Bittersweet and citrusy. As good with breakfast as it is as an aperitivo.

History:

Spumoni is a popular low alcohol cocktail in Japan, particularly in Tokyo, so much so that Suntory marketed a canned Spumoni cocktail. Spumoni naturally featured in an episode of the Japanese Bartender anime television series where it was noticed by New York bartender, Jon Mullen who made his own version of the Spumoni at Bar Pisellino. Mullen's version has since become something of a contemporary classic in the USA.
