Modcast #234: The Best of Days

It is the best of days when you've got a mix like this one to keep you company. From to new to old with a few stops in between, I think you'll dig this week's modcast.

And it only gets better when you add a delicious summer cocktail. This week's concoction: Italia Libera
1 ounce overproof (150 proof alcohol) white rum
1 ounce amaro
1/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
Chilled seltzer
1 lime wedge, for garnish
Combine the rum, amaro, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice, top with seltzer and garnish with the lime wedge.
