Happy Hour Tuesday: Italian Sunrise

Happy Tuesday everyone!

We hope you all had a great weekend and got to spend some time with your Moms, with whom hopefully you got to enjoy some Lemon Bacca Baci drink as we suggested last Tuesday 🙂

This week we celebrate one of the most popular drinks that use limoncello, the colorful Italian Sunrise. Preferably served in an ice cold highball glass, this cocktail with its warm red and yellow tones that playfully blend in as on a painted canvas reminds of a beautiful sunrise over the Tuscan hills.

The unmistakable bittersweetness of Campari offsets the sweetness of the orange juice with Rometti limoncello, and adds a pleasant herbal aroma that goes so well with the sweet and sour from the citrusy mix of oranges and lemons.

Whether it’s raining outside or the sun is shining, you won’t help but smiling while sipping on your tasteful Italian Sunrise!


1 1/4 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Campari
1/4 oz Rometti Limoncello
3/4 oz Orange juice
3/4 oz Sweet and sour
This couldn’t be easier! Shake the ingredients and stir into a cold highball glass. If you like you can add a cherry on top or a lemon spiral to garnish.
