'If you've ever dreamed of a Negroni on the veranda of the Gritti Palace on a perfect Spring day in Venezia, or just wanted to return, this is the book for you. Paul Feinstein is the authority on all things delightful and drinkable in Italy, and you'll be expertly pouring everything from apertivos to glorious cocktails and digestivos in no time. Chin chin!'

'Paul Feinstein isn't only my favorite food writer, he is also my favorite drinking partner. I had the pleasure of helping with much of for this tome of Italian libations. It's dense with mature, studied recipes that will tug you to deliciously unfamiliar territory from your safety blanket of Negronis and Aperol Spritzes. Just as exciting, Paul seamlessly weaves fascinating history lessons about how for so long, Italy has been the silent backbone of cocktail culture, and that only recently is she playing a leading role in the movement. A must for the occasional drinker, the professional cocktail aficionado, and even the non-drinker who needs a stunning green book to round out the collection.'

In spite of its few classic ingredients--red bitter-sweet liqueurs, fortified wines, soda water, and prosecco--Italian cocktail culture is incredibly rich and complex. In Italy Cocktails Feinstein breaks it all down, inviting the reader on a grand tour of Italian drinking customs while highlighting the people, places, and recipes that define a national pastime.
