We have another cancelled history lesson. I can’t find where the Sicilian comes from, but it appears to live online rather than in any of the landmark cocktail publications. Despite being named after Sicily, the use of Saronno’s amaretto and Milan’s vermouth means that the drink is probably from Lombardy in northern Italy.

As a relatively low-alcohol cocktail, you can enjoy one of these as a wee ‘livener’ before you go out.
