  1. Averna

But perhaps the richest choice to pair with your coffee is Amaro Averna, a type of Sicilian liquor that has a sweet flavor yet a bitter aftertaste. Its dark color means it mixes well aesthetically with coffee, and in terms of taste, it pairs just as nicely. Just mind the alcohol content: hovering around 30%, this drink may not be what you want to cool off during the day, but it’s perfect for a hot night spent partying.

So obviously, you don’t want to drink all of these on the same day, but you can definitely pick, choose, and try what sounds best to you. And summer’s not exactly short, after all. Two months is plenty of time to drink all sorts of coffee!
