After my wonderful trip to Italy last December, I developed a new addiction: AMARO MONTENEGRO. This exquisite Italian herbal liqueur added to espresso, known as Caffe Corretto (or corrected coffee) is liquid heaven. This particular AMARO was named for Queen Elena of Italy, a former Princess of Montenegro.
It's complex flavors create amazing Signature Cocktails as well. Here is my offering to the much loved Queen.

2 oz Limoncello (Italian Lemon Liqueur)
3-4 oz Italian Blood Orange Soda
