Aperitivo, or a before-dinner drink, is an intrinsic part of life in Italy. Usually made with a bitter liqueur like amaro mixed with soda water or Prosecco, topped off with an orange twist, it's just the right thing for cocktail hour. For this version, I used Galliano L'Aperitivo. —Samantha Weiss Hills
