“This cocktail is sweet, spicy, and slightly bitter. The orange twist adds a bright citrus note to balance it all. Millefiori means “thousand flowers” in Italian, and we were inspired by the liqueur’s complex spices and herbs that add incredible depth to any drink. Many of the spices used to make Millefiori are found in traditional winter recipes, making this drink an easy companion to any holiday celebration. Millefiori can be found under a couple brand names in a good liquor store, but it is also easy and fun to make at home.”
