“When the blast of wintery frost has you thinking of warmer weather, this is the cocktail made to transport you away,” Ronaldo Colli.

“With The Glitzy, Ronaldo pared the tart and tangy with warmth to create a drink that instantly had us scheming on how to spend our Christmas on the Mexican Riviera.

“The Glitzy is the perfect drink for a casual weekend gathering of friends for the holidays when you want to up the ante,” Stefano Turrini, creator of Dimmi

Ground cinnamon, to rim the glassglitzy

4 Orange slices

52.5 ml (1.75 oz) Dimmi liqueur

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lime juice

7.5 ml (.25 oz)  Averna

First rim a double-old-fashioned glass with cinnamon.  Gently muddle the orange slices in a mixing glacee, add ice and the remaining ingredients, and shake.  Pour the drink, without straining, into the pre-prepared glass.

gaz sez: I don’t care what the weather’s like, I’ll quaff one of these babies come rain or come shine.  The way in which the Dimmi dances with the Averno here is just spectacular.
