  • Excellent with CioCiaro when you can't find Picon
  • Layers of orange. Made with TJ's gin which sufficed.
  • Pleasantly sweet. Used 2.25 oz Plymouth gin.

I can't really get past the fact that ANY drink that has more than .25 oz of maraschino is a MARASCHINO drink, and not a Torani Amer drink, etc. While this is a tasty tipple, I have to say it's a fail as far as highlighting the flavor of Torani Amer (or Amer Picon). Anyway, I love maraschino, so it's all good.

I don't think that Torani Amer and Amer Picon are alike at all (and I have both). I struggle with the whole gin + amaro pairing, but this is as good of a swing as I've seen outside the Negroni.


made this with CioCiaro in place of the Amer Picon, and it is delicious - anything with CioCiaro is delicious!
