The Americano is one of the iconic aperitivo cocktails and this version is full of flavors and complexity, starting with the MARTINI & ROSSI Bianco and combining new and old mixology trends to bring a new vibe. Being an Italian living in California and working in a fusion Indian California Restaurant, my aim is to fuse together different styles from around the world whilst never forgetting the basics and my roots, which means vermouth will always have a strong place on my cocktail lists!
