Negroni Week on PEZ wouldn't be complete without homage to a true maestro of mixology. I speak only of Marco - proprietor of the legendary Barolino in Levanto Italy. I vowed after first discovering his bar at the 2009 Giro to return one day with Mrs. Pez - and order two of his finest Negronis.
The best Italian negroni bars are often discovered by accident, or when you least expect it. Early on in my 17 year career chasing the modern Giro d'Italia I began logging the best negronis, bars, and ristoranti as my travels took me to all corners of Italy. Here are 5 of the best negroni bars, places to eat and stay at the 2019 Giro.
It's Negroni Week around the world as thousands of bars pour negronis and raise money for charities. We've got something new for you each day - and that's in addition to the top stories the PEZ Crew have assembled: Team Caja Rural-Seguros RGA Chris Butler's latest diary - EuroTrash - Toolbox - a Primal QX5 Interia kit review, Readers' Rigs and more.
The email from PEZ-Fan Mike C. was a good reminder as he asked when this year's Negroni Report was coming. So may I present three different negroni experiences in three different places - Milan, the French hamlet of Saint-Pierre-d'Albigny, and Geneva, that mark some standout moments of imbibing.
This is one video I've been wanting to make for a long time - and ringing in the New Year seemed like as good an excuse as any to dig out the handycam and add my own two cents to the 'more popular than ever' ongoing narrative about my favorite cocktail - the negroni.
It's Negroni Week across the land (at least that's what they're saying on the interweb), but as I replied to the PEZ-Fans who pointed this out... it's always Negroni Week at PEZ HQ. So what a perfect time to look back at my best negronis of the 2015 Giro d'Italia.
Every negroni has a story - some begin the moment the orange elixer touches my lips, others connect me to another point in time. And while mixing and drinking at home affords the luxury to adjust the recipe to perfection, sometimes it's the location that pins a memory to my mental cork board. A recent trip to Italy set the ideal backdrop for my best negronis of 2014.
