What's not to love about Italy? History, food, wine, art, architecture, and appropriately for drinks, of course, aperitivos and vermouths. To me, affection also extends to our local bearded baseball hero and Italian-American Mike Napoli. I think a drink and a toast to him is certainly in order- liqueur, vermouth from Italy and the base spirit from America.

Bargellino cocktail
1.5 oz Old Overholt rye
.75 oz Cinzano dry vermouth
.5 oz Amaro Montenegro
.25 oz Luxardo Maraschino
Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a coup or cocktail glass.
Garnish with and orange peel.

Spice and backbone of the rye, bittersweet orange from the Montenegro, balanced with herbs and fruit from the light dry vermouth and cherry from Luxardo- it might not make you hit a 480 foot home run, but it will taste like you have.

Go Sox in St. Louis and Cin Cin!
