It has been a long wait for the return of Mad Men. All those glamourous clothes and all that smoking.
There are plenty of places to have a drink in a pretty place in Rome. But a real cocktail? with a bartender (do i dare say mixologist?) not so much.
A few weeks ago the team at Young in Rome organized a party at the newly re-vamped Pierluigi.
Gabriele Guidone created three classics with his innovative spin. A Negroni with a citrus foam, a Manhattan with charred orange peel and a Sazerac with a spicy secret. He sources the best and most unusual ingredients around, speciality bitters, craft gins, lemons from a nearby citrus grove...it's like a very stylish apothecary.
I recently paid Gabriele another visit with my pal and cocktail expert Elizabeth.
I think we could be regulars.
