Amaro

Bottle of amaro for cocktail recipes

Amaro (or amari, in plural) is a bitter-sweet Italian liqueur, traditionally drunk after a meal as a digestive aid.

It’s very difficult to categorize amari; each one is a unique blend of herbs, spices, roots, seeds and other exemplars of local terroir. Given the enormous selection of amari available, it’s impractical to try and own every single one (though it would be a noble ambition to try).

We’ll specify the ideal amaro for each drink, and offer substitutions when possible – but don’t be afraid to try a different amaro from what the original recipe calls for.
