Solerno Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Sicilian Cooler

It's hard to believe, but thanks to a very Indian Summer, Left Coasters are lucky enough to still be enjoying some lingering warm October afternoons. I was a privileged partaker at a recent Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur party where guests basked in sun at a bocce ball court with bright, citrusy cocktails in hand.

My favorite refreshment? A Sicilian cooler, served straight from the skilled hand of San Francisco bartender Jackie Patterson. With a reverent nod to Italy, she played up the naturally floral, piquant, and slightly bitter flavors of blood oranges with Solerno, Campari, and lemon juice. For a sip that'll transport you to the streets of Palermo, read more.
