An Italian amaro (meaning “bitter”), Averna is often enjoyed as a digestif after dinner as the amaro in The Vertigo is made with this bitter Italian spirit. There are no other ingredients in the cocktail other than ginger ale and lemon juice. Drinking this is as easy as mixing up a cup of tea. It’ll just be a matter of pouring. This cocktail is remarkably different from the ordinary mix because a simple bartender’s trick dresses it up beautifully. Vertigo, when layered on top of the sparkling citrus mix, creates a stunning look due to the layer of Averna. Drinking it induces the taste of the drink to transform as the liqueur melts into the soda and the taste continues to evolve.
