This is my absolute favorite cocktail. I have tried several different Amaro's and Amaro Montenegro is my favorite pairing. Amaro Nonino is also great though! Perfectly refreshing and complex. If you're looking for a drink that tastes clearly of bourbon, this is not it. I love bourbon but I would say this drink focuses more on the aperitif/deigestifs.
Delicious EXACTLY s the recipe suggests. Wouldn’t change a thing!
I will look for variations to this recipe. It felt like too much lemon juice and too much amaro and aperol. A bit too acidic and bitter. Maybe more bourbon!
One of my favorites. For those, like me who are having a terrible time finding Nonino, I can highly recommend Amaro Amorino from Letterpress Distilling in Seattle as a substitute.
Thoughts on subbing tequila and like for the bourbon and lemon?
