What: Dig, if you will, spring sampling events from Averna Amaro, the Sicilian herb- and citrus-infused spirit that’s equally desirable as a shot, mixed drink, neat, or on the rocks. Give them a “Like” on Facebook to score the details on their April tasting itinerary, and revel in the liqueur that’s been rocking amber waves of amaro since 1868.
When: April 2012 -- “Like” Averna on Facebook to score the deets
Where: Williamsburg, Brooklyn -- soon to be un-ironically known as Little Sicily, USA
Why: This is a far more satisfying way to ingest history than watching it on basic cable.
