I love Milan by day, and I could eat up the city by night. Over the past 10 years, Milan has emerged as Italy’s most edible city but Milanese, whether born or transplanted, know that the Grey Lady is also Italy’s most drinkable city.
Campari, Milano-Torino (Americano), Negroni, Negroni Sbagliato, so many of my favorite drinks and cocktails have origin stories from this amazing city, and I particularly enjoy drinking my way through these tales. If I could have one partner who would not only revel in the cocktails as much as I do but also in the history, it’s Sara Porro, Italian journalist, Milan resident and my go-to person when I need to talk food.
