Ahhh, I remember my 1st Cynar. I was 12 and I was with my uncle in his FIAT 500 driving the a windy road in the Apennines. I was nauseous . He stopped off at an Osteria and gave me a shot of Cynar to settle my stomach. You need to try Fernet Branca next, if you haven’t already.

Have not tried Fernet Branca (or heard of it, for that matter). Always something new!

After seeing your comment last night, I tried sipping the Cynar straight. It’s fairly brutal – nothing like Amaro Montenegro, which starts nicely sweet. I will have to try sipping Campari but I have a feeling they’re pretty similar that way.
