Ladies & Gents, my New Year cocktail - The Scullacione! Cheers, Salud, Saluti! However YOU say it, you need a glass of this little delight as you toast. Maybe one in each hand?
Mexican & Italian Shake Up
Bitter, sweet and a little smoky - this celebration of Italy & Mexico is a burst of everything. Personally, I could drink Campari from the bottle for breakfast (goals) so anything mixed with this Italian treasure has already piqued my interest.
The Scullacione - translated as 'the spank' is a perfect hit of Campari, tequila, simple syrup and grapefruit juice. I tried a similar version of this in Nancy Silverton's fancy LA restaurant, Osteria Mozza recently and was very impressed. We obviously had to recreate the magic at home and Brendan, the other half did a sterling job - I think we had two of these on Christmas Eve - I say I think, the night was a little/lot blurry. Just the three of us (Shirley had water) watching Trading Places and drinking everything in the house.
We plan to create this cocktail on NYE with friends - you should too. Down the hatch 2019! Happy 2020 to you all!
