I have never given much thought to the alcohol content in the cocktails I mix at home. Never divided them into any kinds of weak/strong light/heavy categories. But recently I've spotted and mixed a couple of light aperitivos and been really delighted with them.
I'm sure much of their allure has been amazing photos from Punch Drink's photographer Lizzie Munro but then when I tasted them it was clear that they taste as good, as they look.
A few weeks ago I mixed a Garibaldi - they way it's mixed at Dante in New York. So simple and so tasty. And it came in handy the other day when a visitor asked for something light.
And then the Spumoni - the way it's mixed at Bar Pisellino in New York caught my eye. I just had to try that one too.
I did not alter the recipe - just follow the link - my only personal stamp was the use of the Spiced Negroni Gin from Three Pillars - that played really well with the rose peppercorn syrup.
And so now I have a really light drink and a quite light drink in my repertorie.
