Amaro Caldo

Joe Campanale, Fausto | Brooklyn, NY

amaro caldo cocktail recipe

Our good friend the Brooklyn restaurateur and sommelier Joe Campanale first had this warming combination of steaming hot water and amaro with a group of boar hunters in the Tuscan town of Panzano. It’s about as easy as it gets and reinforces our view that amaro is its own bottled cocktail—just add water.
