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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
