Tip Your Bartender: Amor y Amargo, New York

Amor y Amargo's Your Favorite Sweater is loosely inspired by the bright, citrusy, refreshing, and dry flavor profile of the Mai Tai.

Tip Your Bartender is a social media initiative from PUNCH connecting our readers with bar teams across the country via Instagram. We’re asking select bartenders to share their drinks (albeit virtually) and encourage the PUNCH audience to “tip” during the economically uncertain times ahead. 

Between March 30th and May 29th, for every dollar tipped to bar teams, the Bacardi family of brands has generously committed to matching it with an equal gift to our charitable partner, Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation.

Send a tip to the Amor y Amargo bar staff via Venmo by searching @Blake-Walker-2.

Your Favorite Sweater

Your Favorite Sweater is loosely inspired by the bright, citrusy, refreshing and dry flavor profile of the Mai Tai. In keeping with Amor y Amargo’s tradition of not using juices, syrups nor any other non-alcoholic ingredients, the bar combines a blend of sugarcane distillates and light, crisp, bitter aperitifs that can be served in the style of an Old-Fashioned. The cocktail is one of the bestselling drinks on Amor y Amargo’s most recent menu, and they hope you can enjoy it at home!

¾ ounce Banks 5 Island rum
½ ounce cachaça
½ ounce St. Raphaël Ambre aperitif
½ ounce Capitoline Tiber aperitivo
¼ ounce Navy-strength Jamaican rum
1 dash Scrappy’s lime bitters
1 dash Boy Drinks World Aromatic Walnut bitters

Garnish: orange twist

Combine all ingredients in a rocks glass with ice. Gently stir to integrate and chill. Garnish with an orange twist.
