Amère Nouvelle

In Strasbourg, it’s common to enjoy an Amer Biere as an aperitif before dinner. The Amer used for this preparation is a classic Alsatian type of liqueur that tastes of bitter orange, gentian and other spices. The Bittermens Amère Nouvelle is an American interpretation of this classic liqueur, designed to work in classic cocktails such as the Brooklyn and Liberal… and of course, it’s beautiful in an Amer Biere.
