Bitter As F**k
Scotch, is malt whisky or grain whisky made in Scotland. Originally made from malted barley, with the addition of wheat and rye. It must be aged for at least 3 years in oak barrels.
Meaning 'scented' in spanish, this is a sherry made in Jerez produced by oxidative aging giving it a dark color and nutty flavor. Unlike the Fino and Amontillado sherries, in Oloroso the flor yeast is suppressed by fortification at an earlier stage, allowing to slowly oxidize for longer time periods (often years) in American or Canadian oak barrels.
An Italian aperitif made of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona with other ingredients. Usually 11% ABV.
A Swiss amaro made with 25 roots and herbs, including bitter orange, gentian, hyssop, rhubarb and wormwood; 28% ABV.
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).
Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a double rocks glass. Express the lemon peel over the drink and discard. #stir #straight
