Drink Like An Italian

Posted: 06/22/2012 2:50 pm

From pasta and pizza to tiramisu, Americans have a pretty good idea how to eat like an Italian. But how does one drink like one? Well, there are of course shots of rich espresso and an abundance of wines, but the country also produces a number of fine spirits and has even contributed some classic cocktails.

So we picked out a few wonderfully refreshing recipes that call for Italian ingredients, including bubbly prosecco, bitter Campari and complex amaro.

So while you may not score an invite to George Clooney's villa on Lake Como this summer, at least you can get a taste of the experience by making these recipes at home. Buona fortuna!
