STOCK YOUR BAR:
Six flavourful options worthy of a place in your liquor cabinet
Skip the seasonal onslaught of fun-sized Oh Henry! bars and opt instead for this more refined mix of caramel and nutty notes.
Made from a recipe dating back to 1868, it’s the sweetest of this bunch, leaving a luscious aftertaste of chocolate and cola. In other words, it’s a second helping of dessert.
A silky, light amber liquid. Combining herbs from the Fruili mountains, it’s aged in oak barrels for five years to acquire a distinctively smoky taste.
The traditional choice but also the most noble — it’s named after Princess Elena of Montenegro. A gentle, orangey flavour makes it a great introductory amaro.
A fernet is a subset of amaro that’s less sweet, more bitter, and extra strong. This one’s a spicy, syrupy blend of cardamom and saffron.
Particularly beloved by bartenders, this dark brown option gets its earthy flavour from an unconventional source: artichokes. (Well, those and 13 other botanicals.)
