Discover a world where Peroni meets negroni thanks to these great beer cocktail recipes!

When you think of Peroni, what do you think of? The iconic green bottles? A cold one on a hot day? Or, maybe if you’re lucky, a summer’s evening on the Italian Riviera? But, chances are, you probably don’t think about sipping a cocktail. 

In fact, seeing beer as an ingredient on a cocktail menu might seem bizarre to some. 

But that’s exactly what the home of Italy’s most famous lager is suggesting you do. Forget everything you know about beer and try these three easy beer cocktails. With a base of their iconic Nastro Azzurro, these tipples offer everything from a tangy orange to a refreshing fizz.

So clear your plans and round up your mates to try one of these beer cocktail recipes. Just like people, these are all best served chilled.
