Amaro Amore Cocktail Recipe

amaro amore cocktailCoffee is among our favorite aphrodisiacs and when we learned that August is Coffee Month we thought nothing could be better to celebrate this aphrodisiac month thank a cold, invigorating coffee cocktail. This recipe comes to us from Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark, also known as the Cooking Channel’s Alie & Georgia. We love that it blends coffee with bitter, sweet flavor of amaro. Amaros are Italian liqueurs made from a combination of herbs, often blended with citrus and a kiss of sugar in a neutral spirit. We think layering the caffeine and dark, earthy flavor of espresso with the herbal and sweet notes of the amaro raises the aphrodisiac bar on the cocktail category.
