Winding my way to Slow Food's Salone del Gusto

I have been one busy gal, working my way through Italy with the final destination of the Slow Food Salone del Gusto. 
A very strong cocktail culture exists here but very different than the US. The small batch distilleries we have popping up everywhere, the experimentaion of new flavors and products, the unusual combinations, is not anything I am seeing here. The classic and traditional spirits, especially of course Vermouth (invented in Torino)and Amaros, line very shelf. 
 I have happily gone the route of embracing the stalwarts of Italian cocktails, and pictured here are some of these endeavours. Beautiful and tasty all!
