Campari (25% ABV)
Why Sipping Italy's brilliant bitter in the afternoon counts as mindful imbibing - that's what aperitivi are made for. Top it with soda or fresh oj or cut with sweet vermouth for the Negroni's easy-going cugino, the Americano. Alternatively, just Spritz.

Lillet (16.5% ABV)
Why Floral, elegant and fleshy Lillet is a blend of Bordeaux wines (mostly Sémillon) and fruit liqueurs rested in oak. Pour over rocks with a lemon twist for the simplest back-patio drink of your dreams.

Tio Pepe Extra Dry Fino Sherry (15% ABV)
Why Tio Pepe came about almost 200 years ago when the founder of what would become the iconic sherry house Gonzalez Byass gave a bodega to his uncle Pepe to produce his own special fino. Addictively dry and especially awesome with savoury bites like chorizo, cheese and olives.
