Announcing the “Amaro Never Knows” National Book Tour


I’m excited to announce the dates and cities for my upcoming “Amaro Never Knows” national book tour. My new book, Amaro: The Spirited World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs, will be available on Tuesday, October 11 (if you haven’t already pre-ordered a copy, I hope you’ll consider doing so either online or at your local bookstore) and I’ll kick off a 12-city tour starting in New York City.

The events will be a mix of talks and guided amari tastings along with Amaro Power Hours, where bars and restaurants will be featuring cocktails from the book along with small bites. In Memphis, at Porcellino’s, we’ll have an evening of bocce and bonfires with roaming amaro cart service. Chef Matt Bolus at The 404 Kitchen in Nashville promises a family-style whole hog barbecue with bittersweet drinks to wash it down. The day before Halloween in Seattle, we’ll have a “Haunted Hangover” bitter boozy brunch service at The Carlile Room. In Los Angeles, Highland Park Bowl will be hosting an afternoon pizza and bowling party. And in Chicago at Billy Sunday, we’ll be “Tasting the Cover” by sampling some of the vintage amaro featured on the book jacket of Amaro.

Check out the “Events” listing on the left-hand side of this page for more details (and links will be added with more information). I hope you’ll save the date for any stops in your city, and I look forward to seeing you this fall. Stay bitter!
