- 4 cl Italian Red Vermouth
- 4 cl bitter Italian aperitif

- Lemon zest
Sanpellegrino Americano is a cocktail with a big personality. Its main ingredient is Sanpellegrino Chinotto, a soft drink in which the aromas of citrus fruits and woody spices such as cinnamon are clearly recognisable.
The flavour of Sanpellegrino Americano is intense and, despite a pleasingly bitter finale, the palate clearly discerns the taste of Sanpellegrino Chinotto: sweet but never cloying. Vermouth and bitter accentuate the Sanpellegrino Chinotto to create a special and memorable cocktail.
The bartender's secret? Make Sanpellegrino Americano with plenty of ice: this tip will preserve the flavour of the drink and keep it fresh and tasty for longer. The ideal garnish is simple yet important, because it enhances the aromas of the cocktail: place an orange wedge 3/4 deep in the glass, then add a piece of lemon zest after squeezing its essential oils onto the rim of the glass.
Excellent when served after dinner and perfect as an aperitif for all those who love bold, lingering flavours.
