Amari & bitter friends: an update

Prior to The Great Site Update of Christmas 2014, we published a list of amari hidden under a link on the recommended brands page. We have put some time and thought into our bitter friends, and have split the list into our top dozen or so recommendations, plus a list of other amari that are available.

Some amari are easy to find; others ... not so much. There are hundreds of amari that aren't even imported to the US. Look for amari at larger liquor stores, or specialty stores in the Italian section of your city.

    It's good you guys aren't just Tolkien in your sleep.

  • Re Gathering Storm, 1 day 2 hours ago subspot commented:

    Might need a little more sweetness, very dry as is with my pineapple gomme syrup from Cocktail Codex which is a 1-1 sugar to pineapple juice (with added acid and gum powder). Almost a bit too christmasy, but very good.

  • Re Champs Elysées, 1 day 10 hours ago yarm commented:

    Note: the drink was first published as Green Chartreuse but it is far superior with Yellow to my palate, so that's how I (and most folks) make it.

    Like a complex cola. Made with Fever Tree Elderflower tonic.
