For an authentic Italian drinking experience featuring a selection of Negronis and other specialty cocktails from Italy, check out Brezza inside Resorts World Las Vegas. The upscale Italian restaurant from hospitality veteran Jason Rocheleau and local Las Vegas chef Nicole Brisson offers an innovative beverage program led by Miklos Katona.
“Brezza holds the art of the Negroni to the highest standard and takes pride in offering different variations to make the traditional Italian cocktail approachable to all guest palates, as well as paying homage to its historic Italian roots,” says Rocheleau, who serves as Brezza’s vice president and partner.
First up on the menu is the Tradicionale Negroni. Katona uses three key elements to craft this drink: The Botanist, an artisanal Islay gin, Campari liqueur and Carpano Antica vermouth. For a lighter option, try the Sbagliato. In Italian, “sbagliato” means “mistake.” The cocktail got its name from a bartender in Milan who mistakingly used sparkling wine instead of gin. In the Sour Negroni, you’ll find that it’s a bright, fresh version of the classic cocktail. The fourth and final option is the Mezcal Negroni.
Brezza’s specialty cocktails include the Spritzza, a refreshing classic Italian Spritz, and the Angelo Azzuro, an Italian cocktail that translates to “blue angel” with its beautiful turquoise blue color. You might also find delight in the Brezzacello, a modern take on a Lemon Drop Martini made with premium Limoncello. Lastly, the Sirocco—which is a warm wind blowing over the northern Mediterranean Sea and southern region of Italy—uses Codigo Reposado tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and pineapple juice.
Other highlights include an Amaro Cart, which Katona curated to represent Amari varietals from all over Italy. You’ll find a selection of unoaked and oaked Amari, as well as infused grappas that pair perfectly with dessert or sipped as a digestif after completing your meal. Brezza also features the only official Fernet Branca tap in Las Vegas and a wine and beer menu of classic Italian varietals with domestic and international selections.
