Amaro (Italian for "bitter") is an Italian herbal liqueur that is commonly drunk as an after-dinner digestif. It usually has a bitter-sweet flavor, sometimes syrupy, and has an alcohol content between 16% and 35%.
Amaro should not be confused with amaretto, another Italian liqueur that is sweet and flavored with almonds or with the pits of drupe fruits such asapricots. Nor should it be confused with amarone, a rich Italian dry red wine from Valpolicella.

Relax... Respect... Enjoy and try something different... Dorri
