Sharingan Cocktail

Was thinking the other day: what’s the point in having so many awesome amari if I don’t make more drinks with them! Good point, good point. Amaro Meletti is balanced, caramel, honey and sweet with a complicated back palate that an array of flavors from anise to saffron to lavender. I find it goes smashingly well with rye in this fruit forward cocktail.

The name? It’s red and I’ve been binge-ing on Naruto… (If you haven’t watched it, do it… it’s kind of Japanese Harry Potter)
