Amaro Bootcamp 101
Bryan Lamorena

Learning and imbibing: it’s a skill we think is important.

Here’s why: Amaro has a long, rich history in Europe as both medicine and as a boozy elixir.  Stateside, recent years have been good to this mysterious spirit – Negronis are on menus across the country, the Aperol Spritz was the cocktail of the summer, and more and more amari are being imported from Italy and elsewhere.

In this early December class, we’ll taste through a bevy of different styles, make a couple of cocktails, talk shopping, and learn why this bittersweet liqueur belongs in your liquor cabinet as 2019 closes and 2020 ushers in a new decade of boozing trends.

What will be next year’s Aperol Spritz?

Let’s gather in frame’s intimate space to take off the chill with an evening specially crafted for the amaro lovers and amaro curious among us.

We happen to think this evening makes for a perfect company team-building experience, a client gathering or an early gift …Our mantra: less stuff, more experiences. And we’re quite positive your gift recipients will feel the same way too…..

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
