R I m p e s a t FORTHAVE SPIRITS MARSEILLE AMARO • $28 Brooklynite and Forthave Spir- its founder Daniel de la Nuez’s love affair with European herb- al liqueurs dates back to the summers of his youth spent in his father’s home country of Spain. Like any Amaro worth its weight in botanicals, Dan- iel’s urban-produced amaro delivers bitters face in spades on first taste. But once it jour- neys beyond your buds and takes both forks in the road, the earthy and spicy blend fills your senses with sage, eucalyp- tus, cardamom, and cinnamon, and the pleasant taste of honey (sourced from upstate in Ithica) lingers on. This Amaro is one you can truly enjoy on its own, but don’t be shy—play with it in cocktails, too. FIGGIE AL-GHAWL OR THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO 2 oz. Rabbit Hole Kentucky Straight Bourbon 1 oz.
