Summer In Rome
Created by Chef Eglis Siu, Chef Adrianne's, Miami
1oz Dry Gin
1oz Bitter Bianco
1oz Dry vermouth
Stir/strain. Garnish with 3 Cuban Coffee Beans (local ingredient) and and Lemon Zest.
Creating this recipe I wanted to find a way to savor a small taste of Summer in Rome, but with a Miami flare! For this reasons I built my recipe around the classic Italian Aperitivo, the Negroni. And I tried to enhance the bright and rich tasting notes of Italicus pairing it with a Gin, Dry Vermouth and Bitter adding the local taste of the Cuban Coffee that it is largely consumed in Miami till becoming a staple, given the strong Cuban influence Miami has. Tasty and refreshing, is a perfect representation of a Summer in Rome.
