Cocktails sometimes err on the sweet side. No chance of that with these new wave Italian concoctions introducing onions, chilli and blue cheese into the mix
A new drinking fad is taking hold across the boot: barmen are turning gourmet Italian food into crazy cocktails. If the thought of sipping cheese, onions or chilli peppers sounds disgusting to you, try one of these concoctions and you’ll be amazed to find they are delicious.
Milan’s cool rooftop Armani Bamboo Bar offers a blue cheese daiquiri with a tiny morsel of Italian gorgonzola (on the verge of having maggots) that is shaken to squeeze out the juice. Just a delicate flavour lingers on your taste buds after each sip.
