Zucca cocktail? Try the Joker Highball


Summer is almost here and Zucca cocktail season already started.

We just received a supply of our favourite Italian amaro, Rabarbaro Zucca, made since 1845 in Milan. We love rhubarb and this amaro – a bitter-sweet drink traditionally consumed before or after dinner, with the bitters aiding digestion – ticks all the boxes and tickles our tastebuds.

To a rhubarb infusion in alcohol, Zucca’s creator Ettore Zucca added a mystery herb mix, a handful of Seville orange peel, some cardamom and some quinine.

Illustrator and cocktail extraordinaire Mr Aide recommends you try it in these concoctions of his creation.
I couldn’t agree more, in both variations they taste fantastic.

50ml Zucca
25ml fresh rhubarb juice
ice cubes
200ml San Pellegrino Chinotto or 200ml San Pellegrino Aranciata Amara
