Bitter Liqueurs & Amari
Amaro, which is Italian for "bitter", is an Italian herbal liqueur variety that is commonly employed for its digestive qualities, taken either before or after a meal (aperitivo/digestivo). An amaro has a bitter-sweet flavour. Amari (plural) have been popular for more than a century, famous for their use in the Negroni or Spritz. Alternatively, amari can simply be enjoyed straight, or cold on ice with a slice of orange.
