Occasionally you want to impress your guests (or yourself) with a fantastic, homemade cocktail. To stand out, you often get tempted to use tons of exotic ingredients for creating a cocktail based on an extremely complex recipe. The Boston shaker gets dusted off, the kitchen is turned into a battlefield. That is all a small effort if you have lots of time. But a simple mocktail, that only takes a minute to prepare, can also taste delicious and leaves your kitchen spotless. This Crodino Milano is such a cocktail.
In our search for a nice simple cocktail we stumble upon the Campari Milano. Easy to prepare, but unfortunately not alcohol-free. The two basic ingredients of the Campari Milano,(Prosecco and Campari) however, are fairly easy to find as an alcohol-free alternative. At Campari they also make Crodino. This is an Italian bitter aperitif that you can use to replace Campari. The Prosecco can easily be replaced with an alcohol-free sparkling wine. So these two will be the main ingredients for our Crodino Milano.
