Italicus is a delightful liqueur that's breathing new life into an old type of Italian apertivo, Rosolio, traditionally made with rose petals. Since winning the 2017 "Best New Spirit/Cocktail Ingredient" award at Tales of the Cocktail, Italicus has taken the cocktail world by storm - and for good reason. Redolent with floral and citrus flavors, it's just a tad sweet and is going to be a favorite for spring and summer cocktails.
A luscious cocktail that's begging to be drank poolside. Sparkling wine and Italian liqueurs are a natural combination and the addition of passionfruit gives it a tropical twist. Recipe for Italicus Spritz.
This savory cocktail has an abundance of citrus flavor, thanks to the marriage of Rio Red Grapefruit Cordial, fresh lemon juice, and Italicus's bergamot. Use a dry gin to let the citrus shine, or experiment with a floral gin for a more complex drink. Recipe for Paradisi.
