This local amaro by Forthave Spirits has warm notes of cinnamon as well as herbal and refreshing eucalyptus and mint. Distilled from organic botanicals in Bed-Stuy, it smells like a warm cup of peppermint tea with honey. The raw honey in this recipe adds a soft, subtle sweetness to perfectly balance the bitter digestif.
The original herbal concoction that inspired this amaro was used as a medicinal tonic by medieval thieves caught stealing from plague victims in Marseille. Although there are no medicinal benefits associated with this amaro today, it’s sure to be enjoyed neat or on ice as a digestif. It can also serve as a unique ingredient in a number of cocktails.
