This is a spirit I have no familiarity with, but I did some googling and found a recipe over at Punch for a homemade version. The base spirit is Amaro Ramazzotti, which I didn’t include in this particular story but is quite good and in itself worth of a purchase (it’s very cola-y, which is interesting). Here’s a link.

That was my exact experience. And yeah, those hand blown glasses, I still have no idea where the two that I had ever ended up. I can also say the last time I was ever in a Pier 1 was probably 2001, possibly 2000. I had discovered the value of going to garage/yard/estate sales in an established post-industrial town Read more

Yeah, it definitely took a while to get used to not being able to go out to eat, but we’re used to it now and when it comes to something like this we have no interest in signing up to be part of the test group.
