Angelo Azzuro Cocktail Recipe

Angelo Azzuro

I was recently in Italy in the beautiful city of Venice. There I found a great Italian spirit called Limoncello and a cocktail with Limoncello called Angelo Azzuro. Time has obscured the origins of Angelo Azzuro cocktail and little is known about exactly where it comes from. The story most people go with is that it is a take on the Blue Lagoon cocktail of the 1950s and 60s. It’s bright azure blue color informs the cocktails name which translates literally to “blue angel.” Careful though, this is one stiff cocktail.

INGREDIENTS

  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. Limoncello
  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. Cointreau orange liqueur
  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. Gin
  • 10 ml/ ⅓ oz. sweet Vermouth

METHOD

  1. Add all ingredients into shaker with ice and shake.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with a lemon zest.

NOTES

Limoncello is a lemon liqueur made in the Gulf of Naples and along the Amalfi Coast, as well as in Sicily. For production, the aromas in the form of essential oils are extracted from the lemon peel with alcohol and the flavored alcohol is diluted with a water-sugar solution.
