1 1/4 oz Laird's Jersey Lightning Apple Brandy
1 oz Ramazzotti Aperitivo Rosato
3/4 oz Pasubio Vino Amaro
2 dash Bittermens Burlesque Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
For a second drink at Amor y Amargo, I asked bartender Bruce Schultz if he had any recipes that he had been working on. He replied that he had a Negroni variation that was inspired by a conversation with a New Zealander who came into the bar about a month prior. While the literal meaning of the term is someone who is into train schedules and other rail-related minutia, Bruce described that it can be anything rather odd that you are really into. Here, the Pasubio's blueberry notes were allowed to shine and were perhaps bolstered by the other fruity elements in the mix. Indeed, the nose started things off with an orange and blueberry aroma. Next, caramel and blueberry on the sip slid into apple and herbal flavors on the swallow.
