A night cap or an after meal cocktail for you. I really like the complexity of amaro and bitters with Mr Black. The Black Walnut Bitters contributes a robust, earthy and nutty character and futher enhance by the homemade orgeat. The Amara Lucano provides a bitterness with a spearmint freshness, herbal complexity and mild spice to the cocktail.
