Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: Celebrate National Cocktail Day with Amaro Lucano
Happy National Cocktail Day!
What a better way to celebrate the holiday than with some delicious cocktails featuring Amaro Lucano.
Pasquale Vena first developed this special recipe of 30+ herbs and essential oils in the backroom of his famous cookie bakery in 1894 in Pisticci, a small town in Lucania, Italy.
The Amaro Lucano recipe has been passed down through the years and is still family-owned today in its fourth generation. The recipe is jealously kept by the Vena family and is continually appreciated by consumers all over the world.
Lucano has become a family staple on tables in Italy and has grown as a well- known and established producer of high-quality, 100% authentic Italian products.
Amaro Lucano boasts complex aromatics on the nose and is well balanced with a poised flavor profile. Characterized by floral and citrus flavors, hints of herbs and vegetal notes shine through in a rich bouquet of spice and herbs.
Make sure to try out these amazing cocktails and keep the White Rabbit in mind to feature during the upcoming Easter celebrations!
