Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Guys, seriously, we cannot let go of our Averna infatuation. It would be fair to call it an obsession. It may even be fair to call it stalking. Someone may need to call the authorities to report us.

But until that time, we will continue to use it to make deeelicious cocktails, even if they are of the quickie variety!

So lets get down to business before the cops show up and take us in for questioning…

No muss, no fuss, we are just going to get down to business.

For the Sicily Spritz you will need:

  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka (preferably Stoli Vanil)
  • 1/2 oz Averna
  • aprox. 4 oz club soda

Gather your ingredients plus your jiggers, bar spoon, and serving glass.

Fill your glass with ice, and pour in your vodka.


Now add your club soda (for this one, you do want to use club soda, not sparkling water or tonic). You want to almost top-off the glass, with just a bit of room left for the Averna.


But before you add in that magical elixer, give the vodka/soda combo a quick stir.

Now pour in the Averna, but do not stir to combine. Just let the Averna settle in to the drink.



And bam! You’re ready to go! Do you feel transported to a tranquil Italian island? No? Well have another one, maybe that will help.


Cheers, everyone!
