From the team who imparted their European sagacity on the art of the aperitivo, comes a series of surprising spring cocktails infused with the crisp and refreshing qualities of Peroni Nastro Azzurro. So if you dare to drink something different and supremely thirst-quenching, we suggest you order one of the below.
Peroni Capri from Baduzzi
In its essence, the Capri is a finessed Italian take on the beloved margarita featuring tequila, limoncello and freshly squeezed lemon juice topped with Peroni. Paying homage to the ever stylish isle and its role in capturing the country’s effortless European style, it’s a cocktail that is a simple and perfectly balanced vision of Italy in the 60s.
Peroni Negroni from SPQR
Leave it to Ponsonby’s epicentre of socialising to augment the Negroni. The Peroni Nastro Azzurro version of the celebrated cocktail will easily find its place among the cocktail- drinking cognoscenti as a slightly pared back version. Fresh mandarin juice adds a pleasingly bitter depth balanced by a touch of tartness.
Peroni Italian Mojito from Artusi
One of the most popular summer cocktails of all time, the mojito is herein given a makeover with a dose of Italy’s finest beer. Taking its fresh and fragrant framework — mint, rum, limes and sugar — enhanced by the addition of Peroni Nastro Azzurro, this revitalising beverage hits the thirsty palate on all the right notes.
Peroni Al Fresco from Non Solo Pizza
The most refreshing and uplifting cocktail we’ve had the pleasure of drinking in a long time. At once, fresh, green, aromatic, gently spicy, sweet and sour thanks to its use of elderflower cordial, lemon juice, cucumber, basil and black pepper, the Al Fresco’s perfectly balanced qualities make it ideal for quaffing, well… al fresco. Trust us when we say this is a seriously gratifying summer tipple.
Peroni La Piazza from Farina
For those partial to a cheeky shandy, La Piazza is essentially the Italian equivalent, albeit with more pizazz. Inspired by natives who would enjoy a Peroni Nastro Azzurro with a little sparkling lemonade on a hot day, this version adds Angostura, rosemary and the added fire of a touch of ginger to the beer; flavours akin to the warm Mediterranean summer.
Peroni Impresso from Andiamo
With espresso martinis having assumed their place in our cocktail drinking consciousness, the Impresso equally hits the mark. The beloved Herne Bay watering hole uses vanilla infused vodka and sugar syrup as well as Segafredo coffee and a dash of Peroni to forge an espresso martini unlike any other.
Peroni Spritz from Gusto at The Grand
With the Spritz becoming an increasingly popular aperitivo for languid afternoons, creating one from Peroni Nastro Azzurro, prosecco, aperol and pink grapefruit juice results in a delightfully effervescent, low-alcohol drink that is equal parts sweet, sour and bitter.
