It’s Friday! Is there anything better than an awesome cocktail to drink with our friends tonight? Only an awesome cocktail…in The Blonde Salad style! For your night out, we ‘re telling you which are our 5 fave summer cocktails, tasty to drink and beautiful to see…and to post on Instagram of course! We just have a suggestion for you: drink…sorry, read this post only if you are not going to drive tonight!
We’re in the middle of #negroniweek, 7 days dedicated all over the world to one of the most famous cocktail ever, the Negroni. Usually, Negroni is red: in the original recipe, in fact, we find 1/3 of gin, 1/3 of red vermuth and 1/3 of bitter Campari. To celebrate Negroni Week, here’s our fave recipe, with a girlish touch and an amazing violet shade. The secret? Butterfly Pea flower tea, a Vietnamese tea that is detoxing and antidepressant. That’s the ingredient that makes a Negroni even more perfect!
The post-modern Spritz
Want a Spritz tonight? If you’re in Milan, don’t miss the one by Carlo & Camilla in Segheria, the place to be if you want to taste a wonderful cocktail! Instead fo drinking the same old Spritz, that onestly we drank a thousand times, order a Spritz Never Dies, this new fantastic recipe with bergamot’s burbon, dragon fruit, burnt citrus liquor and decorated by this amazing Spritz ice ball. Are you sure you’ll resist the temptation to post this beauty on Instagram?
