We got to enjoy five Fall inspired Italian cocktails (their recipes are featured below): The Passport, Fall into Italy, Carciofi Shandy, Italian Bird, and So It Appears. These perfect seasonal cocktails feature several of the Campari America Liqueurs: Campari, an alcoholic spirit obtained from the infusion of bitter herbs aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water; Averna, a Sicilian Amaro that boasts a bittersweet taste, carrying hints of orange and licorice, balanced with notes of myrtle, juniper berries, rosemary and sage; Cynar, an artichoke-based bittersweet liqueur with a taste enriched by an infusion of 13 herbs and plants; and Aperol, a unique, bittersweet aperitif with a low alcohol content derived from a secret recipe.
