Amaro: The Spirited World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs with Cocktails, Recipes, and Formulas

AMARO                                                             BRAD THOMAS PARSONS

Brad Thomas Parsons, author of the James Beard and IACP Award-winning Bitters, always has his finger on the pulse of what's new and exciting in the cocktail world. But in this case, what's new is old--specifically, the centuries-old European tradition of making bitter cordials and liqueurs. In Amaro, Parsons takes readers on a bittersweet tour of Italian bars, caf├ęs, and distilleries, opening readers' eyes to the rich history and vibrant culture of amaro today. Then, he returns to the United States, where contemporary mixologists are incorporating amari into a delicious and eclectic array of cocktails. Gorgeous location and cocktail photography; an impeccable package; and more than 100 recipes for DIY amaro, amaro cocktails, and amaro-spiked desserts will make this the must-have beverage book of the season.


I was disappointed in this book for I was hopping in more of a history of the company. There was just a slight glance at the history of bitters in general but not of the company. The rest and most of the book is filled with recipes which are good along with the pictures in the book but I was expecting more. growing up in a home that actually used the product when my parents had parties in the 60’s and 70’s I was hoping for more, maybe it was just me. I received this book from I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at
