If George and Amal haven’t invited you to George’s Villa Oleandra on Lake Como, Italy, don’t despair. July’s Italian temperatures are soaring, and the lines of tourists are growing, so why not recreate two of Italy’s favorite summer drinks?

We’ve long been fans of the Sperone brothers and their centuries-old family recipes made from the abundant lemon and orange groves of Southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Here are two refreshing summer cocktails, guaranteed to make you happy you stayed home. Salute! Cin, cin!


Combine 1 oz. of chilled Caravella Limoncello Liqueur and lemonade in a shaker. Shake well. Pour into a tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with fresh lemon.


Combine 3/4 oz. chilled vodka, 1/4 oz. cranberry juice and 1/4 oz. chilled Caravella Orangecello in a shaker. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with orange peel.
