Tre Cocktail at Bar Tre Dita at The St. Regis Chicago

Tre Cocktail

Recipe by

Tre Dita, Italian for “three fingers”—a nod to the precise thickness of an authentic Bistecca All Fiorentina steak—is a love letter to Italy. As such, Diane Corcoran, Bar & Spirits Director for The St. Regis Chicago, created nine original signature cocktails for the “cucina Toscana” and Bar Tre Dita including the Tre, an Italian spin on a martini that features, fittingly, three parts: Italian gin, bianca vermouth and grappa, a palate-pleasing brandy.

Corcoran recommends starting off your meal at Tre Dita with a Tre, La Panzanella insalati and the Schiacciata Bianca, Chef Evan Funke’s signature focaccia bread.
