With Thanksgiving on the horizon, it’s time to finalize the drink menu for your annual feast, and today’s Drink of the Week will help elevate your pre-dinner drinks lineup. Cinque, the newest product from Washington DC’s Italian-inspired liqueur specialists Don Ciccio & Figli, is a bittersweet aperitivo made with a recipe that dates back to 1929. Perfect for fans of Campari, Aperol and Cappelletti, Cinque has a similar bitter orange peel flavor, supported by an underlying brown sugar sweetness and a dark, earthy finish. Sip it on the rocks before dinner, or try it in a pre-dinner Negroni. cordialwine.com, $40
