The Montenegroni

By: The Food Hunter

Amaro is an Italian herbal liqueur that is commonly consumed as a digestif. Tastes vary with brands depending on the herbs used for flavoring. Montenegro features hints of rose petals, dried orange peel, black pepper, saffron and it a slightly sweet yet nicely bitter taste.

Created in Bologna in 1885, Montenegro is still made using its original recipe, a secret blend of 40 botanicals gathered from around the world, collected during the travels of explorer and herbalist Stanislao Cobianchi. Amaro Montenegro's secret recipe remains unchanged as does the boiling, maceration and distillation process that was practiced more than 130 years ago.

Best enjoyed neat the Amaro Montenegro is also fabulous mixed in classic cocktails like the Negroni.
