“Mixes incredibly well with a myriad of alcohol, I’ve done Negronis that replace Campari with POPPY, used it instead of Cointreau in a margarita, and added a few dashes to my Manhattan instead of bitters. Its well-rounded and versatile ingredients list means it can be used all over the place, or as a base for a lower alcohol cocktail. It of course also tastes good on its own on ice. Speaking of ice, this would complement vanilla ice cream with fresh fruit as a dessert or as a base for ice itself.”
Fill glass with ice, add amaro, soda & stir gently. Garnish with lemon wheel
ONE AMARO / TWO AMARI

Greenbar Poppy amaro capture the essence of the Golden State. The concept of amaro originates from herbal liqueurs first created by monasteries and enjoyed as aperitifs and digestifs during the 19th century. Greenbar Distillery added a twist – local ingredients balanced perfectly to make the tastes of California accessible to spirit fans.
WEST COAST ORIGIN
