Bob and Brad continue their "How to Cocktail" bonus series by highlighting whiskey drinks that contain amari. you've probably heard of (and used) amari before, whether in an Aperol Spritz or a Negroni, but the whiskey world is no stranger to the bitter herbal liqueurs. Today, our hosts are using Amaricano from Fast Penny Spirits and dry vermouth by Vya Vermouth to mix up four different cocktails, all of which are sure to scratch that amaro itch.
