Last month we sat down with Naren Young. He’s the cocktail mastermind, co-owner and bar director over at the all-day Italian café (and aperitivo heaven) Dante.
We talked drinking Italian style, the beauty of aperitivo hour and even managed to get our hands on some of Naren’s ridiculously good Italian cocktail recipes. See below and turn your happy hour into a much happier hour(s).
1.5 oz. Campari
Fresh orange juice (the juice of 1 whole orange)
METHOD: Add 2 ice cubes to glass. Add Campari and a little of the OJ. Stir well to combine.
Add 1 more ice cube and fill remainder of glass with OJ.
GARNISH: Orange wedge resting on rim + plastic stirrer.
