Sud Americano

Fabio Spinelli, Rita & Cocktails, Milan, Italy

sud americano Fabio Spinelli

“It’s my tropical variation of classic Italian Negroni aperitif. It’s easier to drink like an Americano is, but with more personality and aromas,” Fabio Spinelli

30 ml (1 oz) English Harbour 5-year-old Antigua Rumsud americano

20 ml (.6 oz) Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth

20 ml (.6 oz) Campari

1 dash Myers’s Jamaican Rum

Splash Fever Tree Ginger Beer

1 flamed orange peel, as garnish

Build on ice and stir well, then add the ginger beer.  Flame the oils of the orange peel over the drink and add the twist to the glass.  Add a wooden stirrer, and stir briefly.

gaz sez:  This is a very worthy addition to the Negroni family, and it works with or without the ginger beer, so take your pick.  Artfully done, Fabio.
