Giovanni Rana Pastificio & Cucina inside Chelsea Market is launching an Aperitivo Hour.

Though best known for its fresh pasta, the 50-year-old company is cooking up cocktails and bites at the bar. Mixologist Anthony Arvin whips up winter blues curing concoctions like Winter Mojito (Goslings Dark Rum, Lime, Mint, Drunken Cherries) and Italian Greyhound (Absolut Vodka, Cynar, Elderflower Liquor, Grapefruit).
