Happy Hour: Rossellini

Sunny weekends in San Francisco are hard to come by. When I awoke last Saturday to clear-blue skies, I headed over to Bar Bambino, an Italian nook in the city with a new back patio.

There, I enjoyed the perfect warm-weather drink: a spin on sangria that was refreshing and fruity without being overly cloying or too heavy on the alcohol. With one in hand, I imagined I was an effortlessly chic Italian woman. I snagged the recipe for the next real Summer day.

The cocktail calls for white wine (I'd recommend a Sauvignon Blanc, or any other dry white with mineral notes) as well as orange bitters, which can be found at large liquor stores. For the recipe,






  1. 5 ounces white wine
  2. 1 ounce white vermouth
  3. 2 ounces fresh-squeezed orange juice
  4. Orange bitters, such as Fee Brothers, Regan's, or The Bitter Truth
  5. orange wedge, optional for garnish


  1. Combine first three ingredients in a large glass or pitcher. Stir to combine.
  2. Serve in a highball glass filled with ice.
  3. Top with 5 dashes of orange bitters.
  4. Garnish with an orange wedge and enjoy.

Serves 1.
