I got this liqueur as a birthday present from a fellow cocktail-lover and couldn’t wait to try it. Italicus is one of the trendiest new liqueurs in mixology right now; it’s bartender Giuseppe Gallo’s updated take on Rosolio, an old Italian liqueur typically made from rose petals or other botanicals. Italicus has all the flavors of rosolio, but also has more bitter hints of bergamot, which cuts the sweetness of the roses nicely. This liqueur makes for the most refreshing summer apertif. Plus, the bottle is just gorgeous!


  • 4 ounces Italicus liqueur
  • 3 ounces tonic water
  • Prosecco (or other sparkling wine)
  • 4 green olives, for garnish


Fill two glasses halfway with ice. Divide the Italicus and tonic water between each glass. Top with Prosecco. Garnish with two green olives each. Enjoy!
