Put some Italian Spirits into your life. Get into the Italian habits:

Aperitivo: The word Aperitivo (Latin for “opener”) defines the ritual of drinking before a meal or it can refer to any pre-dinner beverage such as Vermouth, wine, a cocktail, or beer. The purpose of the Italian Aperitivo is to gather with family and friends, the loved ones with whom you are going to share a meal, and stimulate the appetite with a bitter-sweet light alcoholic drink.

Aperitivo liqueurs can be divided into two broad styles: “Aperitivo liqueur” and “Bitter liqueur”. Both are generically defined as red-hued, wine-based or spirit-based products infused with citrus, herbs, spices, and roots, then mixed with sweeteners to offset their intensity. 

In general, the Aperitivo liqueur style is more soft, approachable, and lower in alcohol. The Bitter liqueur-style contains about double the alcohol and is often more bitter.

Digestivo: The word Digestivo (Italian for “Digest aid”) defines the ritual of drinking after a meal or it can refer to any after-dinner beverage such as Grappa, Amaro, dessert wine, liqueur, or a cocktail. Italians drink digestivos to linger with the meal experience and prolong the company of family and friends.The word Digestivo (Italian for “Digest aid”) defines the ritual of drinking after a meal or it can refer to any after-dinner beverage such as Grappa, Amaro, dessert wine, liqueur, or a cocktail.
