Italians in Happy Hour Heaven

Somedays, a Happy Hour is just more necessary than others. Today is one of them. Here's how Italians (and Italians in training, ahem...Mark) wind down after a long workday or in my almost- a- Physician- Assistant- sister Andi's case, a study marathon.

Compari + Tonic

Equal parts Compari and Diet Tonic Water (I always opt for a little more Compari)
Fresh Lime Twist
Pour over ice
Pretend you are sitting in an outdoor street cafe somewhere in the Motherland


  1. What does Compari taste like??

  2. Gonna have to give that a try. I had a "Skinny Senorita" the other day in Miami and it was had El Mayor Blanco, a lot of fresh squeezed lim, and a splash of Cointreau. Yum!
