A Sip of Southern

 Ask any Southerner what that carbonated, flavored beverage is they're drinking and no matter what it actually is, you'll get the same answer: Coca-Cola. "Co-cola", as my grandmother calls it, is one of the most used mixers in the history of the cocktail and why not? It's sweetness counters most dark liquors and adds a nice balance. Here in Atlanta, the home of Coca-Cola, Holeman & Finch pours up the Southern Cola cocktail using amaro, lime juice and of course, co-cola. This bittersweet cocktail is the perfect compliment to their famous burger {here's a secret: the burger is also served on the brunch menu and is available all day Sunday}. Cheers, y'all!

H&F Southern Cola
1 1/2 ounces Amaro CioCiaro
1 lime juice ice cube (make cubes using 3/4 cup fresh lime juice and 1/4 cup water)
4 ounces Mexican Coca-Cola (made with sugar cane, found in the international aisle at your local grocery)
Put the ice cube in a glass, pour in the Amaro, pour in the Coke, and gently stir. Garnish with lime.
