The Sicilia by Patricia Richards

On the last night of our stay in Friuli, each of the mixologists participated in a friendly “Cocktail Challenge.” Below you’ll find Patricia Richard’s entry, the “Sicilia.”

“The basil and citrus are reminiscent of the flavors of Sicily,” said Patricia. Hence the name, the “Sicilia.”
