Rome with a View
Find a sunny spot, fill a tall glass with ice, add your Rome With A View, top with soda and garnish with the orange provided. Now that the hard part is done, we must insist that you kick back and live ‘la dolce vita’ with this alluringly effervescent, bitter-sweet gem.
The Rome With A View is a hybrid of the Tom Collins and the Americano (the lighter cousin of the Negroni) which was favoured by American tourists who decamped to Italy during prohibition in search of a refreshing but slightly sweeter drink.
Unfortunately, we can’t actually spend the afternoon reclining on the terraces of the eternal city just yet but with a gentle breeze and tall drink in hand, we can but dream.
