Appetizer a la Italienne
A full flavoured red-colored sweet Italian vermouth. Try it in a Manhattan or Negroni. Often considered the best vermouth, along with Carpano Antica. We treat this like sweet vermouth.
A grape distilled base amaro made from various herbs, such as myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe and saffron. Typically 45% ABV.
A distilled, highly alcoholic (45-75% ABV), anise-flavored beverage derived from botanicals like wormwood, green anise, fennel, hyssop, melissa and other herbs. Technically a spirit, as it is not bottled with sugar. The green fairy.
This syrup swaps in golden-hued demerara or turbinado sugar as opposed to processed/bleached white sugar. This gives a deeper, almost caramel-like flavor with a funky molasses nose popular in tropical drinks. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
Combine the vermouth, Fernet-Branca, absinthe, and simple syrup in a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir until chilled and strain into a chilled mug or cup. #stir #straight
