About the Drink

A margarita variation, the name is Italian for the “Skinny Owl.” “It’s a bit of an inside joke…another bartender here used to make margaritas with agave nectar instead of orange liqueur which is a little sweeter. When she left, I wanted to put a cocktail on the list for her. We used to take Italian classes together, and she used to wear a lot of owl jewelry for her sorority. Our Italian teacher used to yell at her because in Italian ‘una civetta’ is a lady of the night.”
