Amaro Averna - Traditional Sicilian Drink
This is a liqueur in a class all of its own. It is so smooth and rich with a full-bodied flavor that is unlike anything I have ever tasted. By itself it is a true reward but I find it an amazing cocktail inclusion when paired with quality brandy, angostura bitters, and Morello cherry or other fruit, muddled or not. It has that quality that makes everyone ask "What IS this?" but cannot be readily identified, making me seem like an amazing mixologist! If you haven't tried this, you really must taste for yourself.
A very nice, complex flavor that is both floral and reminiscent of coffee at the same time. We recommend it as a digestif on its own or in Laphroaig Negroni.
