Milano is the capital of the aperitif; an accolade the city has been proudly displaying for many years now, as a laurel wreath of sorts. Even if history narrates that the first Italian city to move into elegant drinking was Turin, it is impossible not to go back to how Milano took its place in "futurist mixing", which in the 1930s definitely launched a trend destined to continue over time: the aperitivo.
Eventually, the sheer number of aperitif cocktails increased and so have the number of new bars. Discerning customers have driven the demand for sophisticated drinks and bars have risen to the challenge by inventing more and more new concoctions. Nowadays, Milano just never stops experimenting. Gin, mescal, tequila - you name it - the city will have just the right drink for you.
