Italian Summer in the City

Oh imagine: sat on a veranda somewhere south of Italy, cocktail in one hand, pizza in the other. La dolce vita. It’s just what dreams are made of really, isn’t it? If only.

WELL. Prezzo has heard our cries for carbs and cocktails and brought that feeling of la dolce vita right to our front door.. or their front door, should I say? Al fresco drinking are three words that are music to my ears. Combine that with “happy hour” and “summer food menu” and I’m practically on cloud 9.


I got to have a handy go at cocktail making with them this week, and I must say.. I am definitely not cut out for bar tending.. but I they tasted bloody great. They were all Peroni cocktails, and i’m gonna be honest I hated beer until now. Mix it with some limoncello and a few mint sprigs and by golly – it’s the refreshing summer drink of dreams.


I snuck some menu cards so I could share with you guys / maybe finally put to use that cocktail shaker I got for Christmas.
