So, the Italian Redux meal had a wonderful cocktail to start - the Negroni. This is a relatively simple 1-1-1 recipe with one part gin, one part vermouth and one part Campari (bitters). Finish with a twist of lemon or orange. And, try not to drink too many or the Chianti won't taste as good at dinner...but I wouldn't know that...at all.
The dessert was Tiramisu...although I never did get the recipe! However, anything that is soaked in any sort of liquer is likely to taste rather good!
Next post will have the Italian appetizers and mains included.
