Little Italy

Little Italy cocktail

Audrey Sanders, mixology royalty, created this drink as a homage to the New York City’s Little Italy neighborhood. We first read about it in Imbibe magazine, where they recommended garnish with brandied cherries and letting a little of the cherry liquid dribble into the glass – a modification we heartily endorse.

Not gonna lie – the Little Italy a love-it-or-hate it flavor. If you’re a fan of bitter flavors and you’re looking for an alternative to yet another Negroni, it may just be up your alley. It really is a superb after-dinner drink, where the medicinal overtones can be explained away as part of the history of the digestíf as a post-meal tummy-soother.

Make sure to have very fresh vermouth on hand for this drink; it’s bitter enough without the acrid tang of old vermouth.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
