i had the one on the left when i was in copenhagen and i asked the liquor store near me to order it for me. he ended up ordering a different type in addition by accident so i grabbed it anyways. he had told me the one on the left was a white vermouth, which was confusing to me because i thought it had a similar label to the one i had in copenhagen, so i ended up opening the one on the right first. some googling showed the one on the left is the one i had in copenhagen and is not a white vermouth. anyways the one one the right is really good! but i'm excited to open the one on the left because it was excellent.

also, this is my first foray into vermouth without a cocktail in mind, but i have a lot of it now, so i'd love some cocktail suggestions if any one has any.

I just loaded them into an El Presidente. Uhhhh, I dunno. I’ll update if there any unexpected effects but I don’t think I’m a candidate for CBD noticeability. I did detect a slight synthetic, menthol’ish character that I don’t get from straight orange bitters.

i thought this would be a sure shot but not really turning anything up -- is there one of these that tastes really similar to chinotto (bitter orange italian soda)? maybe Averna?

i see it listed as an ingredient in a few things, but looking for something where that's the pronounced/driving flavor.

This is just so good. Straight with a peel it is very close in flavor to a negroni on its own but at 16%. Been drizzling in a little gin.

damn you all for getting me hooked on braulio. been drinking it in a spritz constantly, sometimes I’ll throw some gin or cognac in there too but haven't really mixed it much. also haven't had much luck finding an LC that carries many amaros, anyone got a rec in chicago?

Straight from France. It’s a syrupy cola bomb but is doing well lightened with soda and orange.

I feel like the bartenders at Billy Sunday would be able to point you in the right direction; their amaro selection was comprehensive IIRC

Anyone ever have any luck making their own batch? Starting to look for some recipes but interested if anyone here is particularly excited about one they’ve tried before. I’ve only ever made limoncello and other sweet citrus drinks before but wanted to give something else a try.
