Cane Rosso makes a great pizza pie; they even made true Neapolitan pizzas in Dallas before it was cool. For thick-crust pizza lovers, their pizza may seem flat because, well, it is (structurally). But their cocktails don't fall flat.
A sudden pizza craving last evening sent me into panic mode. Questions such as, "Where do I order?" and "What kind of crust do I want?" swirled in my head, but then I slowed down and remembered a delightful cocktail I'd had at Cane Rosso on my last visit, the London Spritz.
Since it was 86 degrees when I was choosing where to order, a spritz was something that needed to happen.

Canne Rosso’s London Spritz is simple and refreshing — a great cocktail with Fords Gin, grapefruit bitters, sparkling wine and citrus — nothing too crazy, but it couldn't be a more perfect fit for this weather.
Their to-go game is also on point. Staff seals a cup with a sticker stating that it's from Cane Rosso and the cocktail inside, then it's stuffed in a bag and zip tied ... just as nature and Gov. Greg Abbott intended.
