Coda di Leone

Amie Ward, Aggio | Baltimore, MD

“This is my Italian Lion’s Tail,” explains Ward. The name means Lion’s Tail in Italian, and showcases Italy’s amari—specifically, Sibona, a relatively bitter amaro that dries out this traditionally rich cocktail and adds complexity.

  • 3/4 ounce Amaro Sibona
  • 1/2 ounce allspice dram, preferably St. Elizabeth's
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice

Garnish: lime wheel
