This one is a treat. Perfect for a boozy brunch with a shot of caffeinated espresso, and great for a post-meal evening night cap with a shot of decaf. The herbal, bitter-sweet amaro pairs nicely with the rich cherry cola notes from the espresso, vermouth, and cherry. It's rich, syrupy and complex. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Here's the mix:
- 1 1/2oz sweet red vermouth, like Carpano
- 1 1/2oz Amaro, like Nonino or Montenegro
- 2oz espresso, or cold brew concentrate
- Splash of club soda
- Luxardo cherry for garnish
Combine the amaro, vermouth, and espresso in a glass or shaker with ice, shake for 10 seconds, strain over ice if using cocktail shaker, top with a splash of club soda and garnish with a cherry.
