Donna Florio Sangumé Apéritif Cocktail

Donna Florio

Donna Florio Sangume Cocktail

The Story

He was the perfect specimen of a dandy, Count Negroni. Florence, 1919. Every day, at the exact same time, Count Negroni walks into his favourite bar and orders his favourite cocktail, «Americano, please. Strengthened». Mr. Fosco, his bartender, made the right choice when he replaced soda with gin. From that moment on, the aperitivo cocktail Negroni was written in history.

But there is another story that deserves to be told. A story that takes place further south, in Sicily, around that time or just soon after. Donna Florio, also known as Queen of Sicily – although she was only the daughter of a Lord –, graceful and elegant as few other women, would rather fancy something lighter.

«Negroni, please. Softened». Her lady-in-waiting made the right choice when she drizzled a few drops of blood orange juice in her drink. She did so to please her. To let her have a taste of something bitter, sweet and sourat the same time.

This Sangumé cocktail is a tribute to one of the most iconic women of Sicily. “Donna Florio”, the symbol of the Sicilian Belle Époque, described by the poetsas “the Star of Italy ” or simply “The One ”.

Take a sip of this Negroni with a twist, live a night like the most loved Sicilian noblewoman of all the time.
