This little martini is delightfully complex. Amante Anejo with burnt butterscotch and white pepper notes ignites a notable fire. Rhubarb shares the spotlight with Zucca Amaro highlighting its bitter dark side while Aperol illuminates the once red stalks adding cheerful, tangy tangerine to the mix. Blood Orange and raspberry shrub acts as the conductor that finds balance in a quite sophisticated cocktail symphony.
