Elevate life’s moments: Three ways to host and celebrate Italian style

Master at-home holiday hosting with Peroni Nastro Azzurro.

There’s something about the holidays that feels indulgent and luxurious. Whether we treat ourselves or our friends and loved ones, it’s the right time of year to invest in quality classics—from cozy Italian wool sweaters to decadent food and premium drinks like Peroni Nastro Azzurro. This pale, crisp beer has been brewed in Italy using the original recipe and quality ingredients since 1963. Its flavour profile is refreshing and semi-sweet, perfect for pairing with everything from appetizers to your favourite Italian desserts—and there’s also an alcohol-free option that doesn’t compromise on taste.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro and antipasti

The light yet complex taste of Peroni Nastro Azzurro pairs well with a variety of foods, making it a great choice for an antipasti course. While appetizers in North America can range from chips and dip to crab cakes, in Italy, you start with antipasti. An antipasti platter is also perfect party food, allowing guests to graze and offering a variety of flavours. Similar to the ubiquitous charcuterie board, antipasti often include cured meats and cheeses, but they can also feature dried or fresh fruit, nuts, jams and spreads, and marinated vegetables, along with crackers and bread or bread sticks. Set a selection of original Peroni Nastro Azzurro or Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0% in an ice bucket near your platter so everyone can serve themselves.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro and dessert

’Tis the season for treats, and Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s crisp, not-too-sweet flavour profile makes it a refreshing, if unconventional, pairing for dessert. The nutty flavour that comes from the barley in Peroni Nastro Azzurro nicely complements dried fruits, nuts and even chocolate. Continue your holiday celebrations in Italian style by serving traditional confections like Milanese sweet bread, panettone; struffoli, fried balls of sweet dough glazed with honey; and panforte, a rich chocolate cake made with fruit, nuts and spices.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro as a present

Whether you pop it under the tree or bring it as a host gift, Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s holiday-themed six-pack is a festive alternative to the customary bottle of wine. And now that Peroni Nastro Azzurro 0.0% is available, you can also gift a taste of Italy to those who don’t drink or who are looking to achieve more balance in their consumption habits. Make the gift experience complete by pairing the six-pack with a boxed panettone—all wrapped up with a blue ribbon.
