For the party I’m having tomorrow night I wanted it to have an Italian theme. Sometimes that easier said then done and I now have a mixture of Italian, Mexican, and miscellaneous. When I was in Italy last year I was having a conversation about liqueurs with an American who lived there. He said his favorite was Averno Amaro liqueur. I had tried to find it before I left Italy but just ran out of time. I thought it would be nice to have for Saturday night so I hopped onto the computer and ordered it online.
Thankfully it arrived before the party.
Of course I did a little taste test (had to make sure it was ok for the guests right?) and it was good. Not as sweet as an amaretto but a nice sipping bitters liqueur.
I took today off to do the last minute shopping, cleaning the house, start the baking process and finishing the yard. I just received confirmation that a friend’s daughter will help me during the party refilling the food, beverages, etc. I'm so glad; maybe I'll relax a little and enjoy the evening. This will be hard for me as I', a control freak.
Here's to the weekend!!
