From the team at Kelvingrove Café, Glasgow
Originally founded in 1896, but resurrected for the 21st century, the new-look Kelvingrove Café has retained its original sign and shabby frontage, although the interior has been given a cool facelift involving a gleaming brass bar, chesterfield booths and monochrome floor tiles – a nod to the venue’s original incarnation,
Made with Cocchi Americano
Giulio Cocchi founded his business in the North West Italian town of Asti in 1891 after becoming fascinated by the art of pairing food and wine. He began producing quality aromatic infused wines with a great focus on the aperitivo. This led him to open several bars in the region using his recognisable surname, Cocchi (pronounced ‘Cocky’), as a mark of excellence. It was named Americano as the drink was made bitter ‘amaricato’ by the addition of herbs and spices such as gentian and wormwood, but also because Americans in the 20th century had the habit of drinking spirits or vermouth with ice and soda (this was not common in Italy at the time).
