I am a fan of tart flavors; less so, of sweet. This had such a gorgeous balance of sweet and tart, with the subtle bitter of the Amaro (I used Angostura Amaro)! It was bright, warm, and the flavors melded wonderfully. As an aperitif, digestif, or cocktail party/holiday special, this drink does it all! New fave for me!
