"We often serve this very Italian aperitivo as a welcome drink to guests at Gertrude Street Enoteca," says Brigitte Hafner. "It's a lovely way to end an afternoon and start the evening - it's refreshing and not very alcoholic. You can use a short glass or dress it up in a wine glass. And it's also nice with a green brined olive."
