The Tazza di Vita is a fresh, bright cocktail concocted by Suzanne Taliercio over at Liquor.com. Made with Death's Door Gin and Averna Amaro, it's a complex, slightly bitter and vegetal take on spring and summertime highballs like the Mojito. Be sure to use fresh cucumber, mint, and lime juice to really get the flavors of the season in your glass.
