Cocktail: Dimmi If You Like It

Dimmi Italian Liqueur Cocktail
Dimmi (Italian for 'tell me') is a delicious liqueur from northern Italy that tastes like drinking a bouquet of lemons. It's a little bit floral and a little bit herbacious, and for this drink I decided to layer on the floral notes with elderflower liqueur. Add in tequila and a lemon peel garnish, and the result is refreshingly, nose-tinglingly citrusy, and not entirely unlike the concept of a Dimmi-rita that I was thinking about making. Recipe below — tell me if you like it!

Dimmi If You Like It:
    •     1 1/2 oz  Dimmi
    •    1 oz tequila
    •    1/2 oz St. Germain
    •    juice of half a lemon
    •    lemon peel garnish

Shake ingredients together in an ice-filled cocktail shaker until well-chilled, strain into a coupe glass, and give the lemon peel a squeeze to bring out the concentrated, aromatic oils before placing it in the drink (here's a handy guide to citrus garnishes).

I did a lot of taste-testing before coming up with this drink, and just Dimmi on ice is great — definitely worth picking up a bottle for summer drinks!
