Notes

Galliano, is a sweet herbal liqueur, created in 1896 by Italian distiller and brandy producer Arturo Vaccari. The vanilla top note differentiates Galliano from other anise-flavored liqueurs. It is used both for drinking after meals, and as an ingredient for cocktails. Parthenope was one of the Sirens in Greek mythology. Her name means "Maiden-voiced". According to Greek legend, Parthenope was the daughter of the god Achelous and the Muse Terpsichore. She cast herself into the sea and drowned when her songs failed to entice Odysseus. Her body washed ashore at Naples. When people settled there, they named their city Parthenope in her honor. In a nineteenth-century myth, Parthenope was a mermaid who resided in the Neapolitan gulf and one day met a centaur named Vesuvius. They fell madly in love but Zeus, jealous and possessive, turned the centaur into a volcano and so Parthenope, torn apart by an irrepressible pain, could only see his beloved without being able to interact in any way. The coast assumed her features and she could rejoin Vesuvius, forever sanctioning a timeless pact of love.
