Thursday’s cocktail at the Public House will be the Nerina. It is an original from Employees Only in New York, inspired by my all time favorite the Negroni.
There is Amaro in the drink. I had never heard of this but one of our spirit reps coincidentally brought a bottle by a couple weeks ago. This one has a hazelnut flavor and is a great balance between sweet and bitter. According to Wikipedia Amaro is: “is a variety of Italian herbal liqueur, commonly drunk as an after-dinner digestif. It is usually bitter and sweet, sometimes syrupy, usually with an alcohol content between 16% and 35%. Amari are typically produced by macerating herbs, roots, flowers, bark, and/or citrus peels in alcohol, either neutral spirits or wine, mixing the filtrate with sugar syrup, and allowing the mixture to age in casks or in bottle.”
