Artichoke amaro

Bottle of artichoke amaro for cocktail recipes

Italian amari can be made from just about anything you can imagine, but surely artichoke is among the strangest.

Surprisingly, neither Cynar nor Carciofo – the two most well-known brands of artichoke amaro – taste all that strongly of artichoke. Like all amari, there’s a couple dozen other herbs, spices, and roots rounding out the unusual flavor profile.

Also Known As

  • Cynar
  • Carciofo
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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
