Jeff Faile, Bar Manager at Fiola, makes some amazing cocktails. Nuovo Inizio means "New Beginnings" and was the first cocktail on Fiola's list ever. It disappeared during the summer to make a triumphant return this season. This one is a cold weather drink for all the gin lovers out there.
1.5 oz of Ransom Old Tom gin (a floral, juniper heavy, Pinot Noir barrel aged gin)
1 oz of Nardini Amaro Bassano (a sweet and bitter amaro)
.5 oz Cointreau
.5 oz of Campari with a few drops of Orange bitters
Shake the ingredients over ice and serve in a martini glass. Cointreau and Campari go together like peanut butter and jelly, while the Amaro Bassano really ties the ingredients together.
