The Beautifully Bitter Side of Italy: An Exploration into Italy’s Cafe and Cocktail Culture

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 6:30pm, $25

We’ve fallen in love with the diverse styles of Italian vermouths and the bitter liqueurs known as Amaro, and in this class we will share them with you and show off both how these traditional Italian treats are delicious on their own and as the base of simple cocktails we will make that evening. As a bonus Jeff Eastman (the Italian wine and spirits specialist with Left Bank Wine Co.) will be in the RAY-borhood to help present these Italian treats.

Featured spirits of the evening:

Amaro Sfumato Rabarbaro
Aperitivo Cappelletti
Ischia Sapori Rucolino Amaro
Cardamaro Vino Amaro
Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
Cocchi “Dopo Teatro” Vermouth Amaro
Cocchi Barolo Chinato
Cocchi Americano Bianco

We’ll taste all these neat and then make two cocktails: A classic Negroni and the delicious, yet simple, Americano Classico.
