Bottoms Up: Po Pazzo at Cavo
This Mercato drink gets "a little crazy."
Great love affairs start with champagne (or so we like to agree with Honoré de Balzac)—and we’ve been longing for the arrival of Cavo, a sparkling-centric lounge opening this month, for more than two years. Its artfully curated cocktail lists, one with bubbles and one without, have us swooning, and we’re head-over-heels for the Po Pazzo (“a little crazy” in Italian). A riff on a Negroni Sbagliato, Prosecco flirts with fiery-hued Campari but sweet vermouth is replaced by Disaronno Originale, an amaretto recipe that predates Balzac’s musing by a few hundred years. And the final kiss of orange bitters has us seeing stars.
