Any season is the perfect season for a zesty, delicious cocktail to sip on the weekends. Giada De Laurentiis always makes up the best cocktails, and this one may be our favorite yet!

On Sept 17, De Laurentiis uploaded a photo of a mixed drink we need in bulk ASAP. She posted the vibrant photo with the caption, “This Italian Amaro Cocktail is kind of like a soda for grown-ups. Amaro is a bitter Italian liqueur that has tons of nuanced notes of flavor and also acts as a digestivo. Coupled with ginger ale and some lime– this mixed drink is a wonderful after-dinner treat!”
