To follow my cannolo buffet, I was served a lovely glass of mirto liqueur the other day from the previous sender from Italy! Luckily I don’t need to get carded – just “postcarded”. Mirto is a typical treat from Sardinia, the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, located west of Italy (below the French island of Corsica). Mirto comes from myrtle berries (“mirto” is literally “myrtle”), which are infused with alcohol in a glass jar for 40 days in order to make. Afterwards, the berries are squeezed and the juice that comes out is what’s consumed. Mirto is also prepared with a syrup that simply comes from water and sugar. Mirto is offered in Sardinian restaurants at the end of one’s meal to work as a digestive aid, or a “digestivo”. It’s also usually served chilled. Now that I’ve downed about ten pounds of delicious cannoli, an imaginary mirto seems to be well in order! Thank you tons for all your kindness and generosity, Antonella!
