The Cooking Couple // No. 001

A recap + recipes from the latest episode of The Cooking Couple

Inspired by the flavors of our recent favorite bruschetta recipe, Episode 001 of The Cooking Couple was developed with Italian summers in mind. We wanted to create a food + drink pairing that was light, crisp, refreshing, carefree and simple, yet still incredibly full of flavor. In other words, everything that a summer in Italy embodies. The bruschetta is ideal for using up the oh-so-wonderful end-of-season tomatoes, and the spiciness of the chilis are perfectly balanced out with the Italian 75 cocktail, Mr. RC's citrus-y twist on the classic French 75. Grab the recipes below.


  • 2 oz Gin 
  • 1 oz Limoncello
  • 1-2 oz Prosecco
  • Lemon peel


In a shaker, add ice, gin and limoncello and shake. Strain into a champagne glass. Add in prosecco and then garnish with a fresh lemon peel twist.
