  • Summary

    When the Italian fashion brand Trussardi opened their sprawling flagship store across from La Scala, Milan’s historic opera house, they strategically included a ground-floor café to revitalize weary shoppers. As any serious fashionista knows, nothing helps one pull the trigger when wavering over a new handbag or pair of cufflinks like a little liquid encouragement. At Trussardi Café, bartender Tommaso Cecca has not only transformed the brand’s fragrances into aromatic cocktails, but made his own twists on Italian classics, such as the Americano. Replacing soda water with a beer float makes for a frothy, refreshing cocktail. For a lighter, more floral version of this cocktail, Cecca uses dry white vermouth, Weizen or wheat beer, and a lemon peel as garnish. To achieve Trussardi-worthy froth at home, try using an Aerolatte, a mini whisk-blender more commonly used to prepare milk foam for a cappuccino.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 ounces Campari
    • 1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth, preferably Carpano Antica Formula
    • 3 ounces lager
    • Orange zest, for garnish
