Amaro Averna is a mix of herbs, roots and citrus rinds left to marinate in alcohol before supplementing the mixture with natural caramel. The resulting aperitif is enjoyed extensively in Italy and is as common as wine or espresso. This must “HAVE” aperitif mixes well in cocktails or may be enjoyed as is chilled or on the rocks. Averna updated their bottle design this year with stylish new look. Now it’s time to embrace your inner hipster…
