At 130 years of age, Amaro Montenegro Italiano liqueur has only aged with grace and delight as its flavor proves why it has been around so long. Thank goodness back in 1885 Stanislao Cobianchi followed his dream of starting a liqueur company instead of fulfilling the wishes of his family, that he become a member of the clergy. Cobianchi created the famed Amaro using his vast knowledge of herbs.
Amaro Montenegro Italiano liqueur fills the senses with a wonderful fragrance. The mix of orange peel, fresh dried coriander, red cherry, pekoe tea and cucumber create a wonderful aroma that even those who do not imbibe in tasting of alcohol will appreciate. The taste offers a sweetness with a touch of bitterness that one is carefully guided into. One can certainly appreciate the botanical flavor followed by a blend of citrus delights.
Sipped on its own is a delight, but one can certainly enjoy its fine flavor as well with recipes made specifically to relish the taste of Amaro Montenegro. One can easily find an array of wonderful drink recipes that celebrate Amaro Montenegro in many yummy ways. Offer the lovely bottle in a basket of fun mixers and recipes wrapped up to give as a holiday gift.
The amber colored Amaro Montenegro liqueur has been a favorite since it was introduced. Whether sipping alone or in a fun recipe one can see why this delightful liqueur has survived through three centuries. The unique bottle and flavor makes it a wonderful alternative to a bottle of wine to give as a gift offering when holiday party hopping.
A toast to happiness and peace; never be afraid to dance.
