What we're drinking tonight
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).
