Everything tastes better with a view.
And when the view is of the sunset over Roman gardens, and the Negronis are perfectly made, served in heavy glass tumblers by a white jacketed waiter, well, it’s hard to get any better than that.
I also love a good swizzle stick. There aren't enough of those anymore.
The Negronis in question were thoroughly enjoyed during a ‘meeting’ with my editor from AFAR magazine at the rooftop bar of the Hotel Eden. Because, you know, this is the kind of place where such ‘meetings’ between travel editors and writers happen. It’s called research.
While Negronis are not that hard to make (equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari) I swear to god they just taste better when the rosy light of an October sunset in Rome comes streaming through them. And I’m not sure if it was the effect of our second round of drinks, or just the progressively dramatic skyline, but the view over Rome just kept getting better too.
I think it was a bit of both.
