The Start and Finish
An amaro made on the island of Sicily. A sweet, thick and slightly bitter amaro made from herbs, roots, citrus rinds and caramel. Typically 30% ABV.
A light French quinquina aperitif wine produced from 85% Bordeaux semillon wines and 15% macerated liqueurs.
Also refered to as French vermouth, these are (usually) colorless vermouths that have not been sweetened, containing less than 4% sugar.
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.
A bitters made from Seville oranges, cardamom, caraway seed, coriander and burnt sugar.
An orange colored citrus fruit. Many types of orange make an appearance in cocktails. The peel and juice are equally valuable to diverse cocktails.
Stir with ice and strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange twist. #stir #ontherocks
