Harry Craddock published this delectable Ada Coleman recipe in his Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930. It is essentially a Negroni, but switching out the Campari for Fernet makes it a different animal altogether.
Old Overholt∙Braulio Amaro∙sugar cube∙bitters
The quintessential American classic takes a little trip to the Italian Alps with an amaro made from mountain herbs, roots and flowers.
Amaro CioCiaro∙Varnelli Caffe Moka∙coffee concentrate
Inspired by Al's custom of taking a caffe corretto after a big meal, this cocktail combines the burnt orange of central Italian digestivo Amaro CioCiaro with cold-brewed coffee and espresso liqueur from the inimitable Distilleria Varnelli. It'll keep you going!

What would an Italian party be without a little wine? We're thinking of bringing along lively cousins lambrusco and prosecco, and maybe a few bottles of the perennial standard, Chianti, too.
