***From Annette Joseph, named one of The Salonniere's “100 Best Party Hosts.”

Included in Eater's "Every Spring 2018 Cookbook That Matters."

Summery, beachy, vibrant, refreshing.


“Aperitivo” or “Apero” is an integral part of Italian lifestyle—it is the daily ritual of meeting late afternoon or early evening for a cocktail and a few nibbles. As a renowned expert on food styling and entertaining, and currently restoring a castle in Tuscany, Annette Joseph is an experienced, authentic guide to la dolce vita of Italy.

With chapters on twelve major cities along the Italian Riviera (including San Remo, Genova, Portofino, and Santa Margarita), each will feature unique cocktail recipes as well as regional appetizers traditionally served with cocktails, often as a beachside ritual. You’ll also find sidebars offering detailed info about local distilleries, celebrity barmen, cultural idiosyncrasies of bar life, famous hotels, and much more.

Recipes include:

  • Limoncello Margarita
  • Ice Cubes with Blood Orange Juice
  • Aperol Spritz Shakerato
  • Savory Mascarpone Ice Cream with Balsamic Roasted Grapes
  • Orange Fennel Marinated with Pecorino Shavings
  • Martini Balsamico
  • Manhattan
  • Sbagliato Shakerato
  • James Bond “Vesper” Martini Cocktail
  • Campari Soda
  • L’apertivo Cocktail
  • Milano Torino
  • Un Americano a Torino
  • And much more!

Like a summer visit to the Amalfi coast, Cocktail Italiano will excite readers who are drawn to the beauty and style of Italy, travel aficionados, cocktail lovers, photographers, and will offer the perfect inspiration to enjoy a bit of Italy at home (or, toss it in your bag and head to Milano!).
