...Or from Two Bottles: Embrace the 50/50 Shot
The mixing of certain amaros, liqueurs, and spirits in equal parts can lead to some real magic and some very cool shot names.
Bitter meets bitter in a deep ruby color as sexy as the namesake car.
THE HARD START
Invented by Brooklyn bar owner Damon Boelte, this is a combo of two fernets that magically mellow each other out into a subtly minty shot.
Smoky, bitter, sweet, and balanced enough to consider turning into a full-on cocktail.
Okay, it’s technically not a 50/50 shot but a shot of pickle brine and one of whiskey, ideally Jameson. It still makes for an umami bomb of a combo.
