Rossini cocktail and homemade savoury biscuits

In the Rossini cocktail, as in many other Italian drinks like the Spritz Aperol, Hugo Spritz, Bellini and Negroni sbagliato, the strong alcoholic component is usually the sparkling Prosecco wine.

The Prosecco is a white wine produced from the Glera grapes in the hillside vineyards of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia (Northeast Italian regions). Depending on your taste, you can make the Rossini cocktail with dry Prosecco (17–32 g/l of residual sugar), extra dry (12–17 g/l ) or brut (up to 12 g/l). For an uplifting summer aperitif, we recommend pairing this delicious cocktail with these appetising savoury biscuits.

Liptauer canapés

Liptauer is a creamy and tangy cheese quite popular across multiple countries. It is no surprise that there are many variations on the spread. We find Liptauer in many groceries in Trieste (the main city in the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia) as this cheese is very appreciated in the north east of Italy. We opted to make Liptauer using ricotta and mascarpone cheese instead of sheep cheese, and sweet paprika instead of hot paprika.  Our version is sweeter and delicate, perfect to be garnished with pecan nuts.

If you want to know where you can taste Liptauer canapé’ during your trip in Italy, try this newborn and useful service: www.lastaurant.com.

Cecina – chickpea flour pancake

The cecina or farinata is a traditional street food from the Tuscan Riviera and the Liguria region. People use to eat a slice of cecina in an open focaccia bread named “schiacciata” for a snack or a quick dinner.

This dish is especially popular in Livorno (Tuscany region) where it is called “5 e 5”, because in the past 1 cecina and 1 focaccia costed only 5 lire each.
