From Ego we pass by during the Milan Bar Marathon. The guys are very excited, they can’t wait to let us taste the cocktail they will make during the two days of the final party: Rock the Casbah, a strong mixture of Bourbon Whisky Maker’s Mark, Brancamenta, lime juice, Moroccan mint tea syrup and ginger beer tops. Andrea Marchi is the young bartender you find behind the Ego counter: a strong Sardinian accent, a great desire to do and a good smile.
He welcomes us with wide-open arms and we immediately become best friends. The Ego wants to be just that: a small bar of friends with Hawaiian hues but never tacky, which distracts you from the chaos of the Navigli. It is located on the Naviglio Pavese and spending an evening there to discover their travel-inspired cocktail list is a real pleasure. Their cocktails are a pleasure to drink, too bad we are back from Sonar otherwise we would have closed with them, to the point of getting kicked out. Ego is the ideal place to relax, drink well, chat in peace and have a new friend as barman. You know, another place we won’t quit anymore.
