    Peroni Nastro Azzuro

    The first time I tried Nastro Azzuro beer the taste convinced me that this translated directly into "Nasty Azz" beer. I later found out this means "blue ribbon," but that doesn't make it taste any better. To give an idea of just how bad this beer is, it scores a 6 out of 100 on RateBeer.com, an almost unheard of score.

    The beer comes in a green bottle, always bad for skunking, and it has a white label with a blue ribbon. A pale lager, the beer is a light golden color, and pretty plain and mainstream like a Budweiser.

    This used to be an Italian beer, now it's owned by SABMiller.

    Avoid "The Lady"!

    The Lady

    No she's not a "lady of the night"... she's a lady of the bottle. Specifically, the wonderful, yet poisonous lady delicately displayed on the bottle of southern Italy's Amaro Lucano liquor.

    This potent pourable was first produced by the not-at-all famous Pasquale Vena in 1894. How it survived over 100 years no one knows. According to their website, its terrible bitterness can be used as a "digestif", "apertif", or as a punishing "balsamic grog"... mmmmmmmm grog. You can also use it to induce vomiting or shine your fine silver.

    Its thick, dark sheen closely resembles motor oil, while the taste is indescribable. Luckily the burning sensation in your gut only lasts a few minutes until it turns into a warm, heavy ball.

    For other, more enjoyable drinks, our hotel had a bar between the two swimming pools out back and we sure spent a lot of time there! There are also several nightclubs within walking distance along the Capitolo beaches...they don't really get started until midnight or so, but go until the sun comes up!
