On Thursday, Andrea was away on a business trip, so I decided to get dinner at Bergamot. For my first drink, bartender Paul Manzelli mentioned that he had a blood orange cordial that he had recently been tinkering with. The cordial was created by bartender Greg Rossi from Dalí across the street, and Greg brought over an extra bottle for Bergamot a few nights before. The night that he brought it over, he and Paul had developed a few drinks including a Negroni variation using it to complement the drink's traditional ingredients.
