Aurum is a sweet Italian liqueur produced in Pescara since 1925, it has a 40% alcoholic volume and it is made from brandy and citrus fruit infusion. It goes well with sweets, especially with parrozzo, another specialty of Pescara. Other than as a drink, it is often used as a cake ingredient or as an addition to ice-cream.

The name of this liqueur was chosen by Amedeo Pomilio, the founder of the Aurum factory, upon suggestion by the poet and writer Gabriele D'Annunzio, with a reference to the ancient Roman origins of the recipe. The name derives from the pun between the Latin words aurum, which means gold, and aurantium, which means orange (fruit).
