The Vertigo is a great, refreshing drink created by Duggan McDonnell to feature Averna. This sometimes forgotten, herbal liqueur shines in this mix, highlighted by light, sparkling citrus. Because the Averna is layered on top, the drink makes a transformation as you drink and adding more intrigue to the experience.


  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • Ginger ale
  • 2 ounce Averna liqueur
  • Lime wedge for garnish


  1. Stir lemon juice and ginger ale over ice in a highball glass.
  2. Float Averna on top.
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge.
