This fragrant Italian liqueur is bright and sweet, with persistent, natural apricot flavour. (In short, it doesn’t suck.) Don’t be thrown off by its subtitle, Liquore della lupa (“She-wolf liquor”). This won first place at a Next Top Liqueur contest held in 1930s Rome, earning the stamp of the city’s mascot. Mix it in an apricot fizz or a Three To One Cocktail (1½ oz gin, ¾ oz Luxardo Albicocca, ¾ oz fresh lime. Shaken, strained and served up).
