Brew Pub

Drink: Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Ingredients: Beefeater gin, Campari, prosecco, grapefruit, rosemary 

Our take: Campari and grapefruit combine to make the bitterness of this cocktail the forefront of its flavors. Prosecco adds lift, while distributing the oils of the piney rosemary. 

Location Details Streets on Carson

South Side
Pittsburgh, PA
American and Quick Bites

Drink: La Befana

Ingredients: Gin, sage, Cocchi Americano, Campari, lime 

Our take: Pleasantly floral and soft, this take on the negroni is much more delicate than its classic cousin. The bitterness of the Campari provides a little dimension, but doesn’t overwhelm.
