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.
25ml fresh rhubarb juice
200ml San Pellegrino Chinotto or 200ml San Pellegrino Aranciata Amara
