The Italian Buck   

A drink that is truly for the Amaro enthusiast, this cocktail is both bittersweet and refreshing. Normally, Bucks would contain Bourbon, but here, whiskey is switched out for both Cynar and Montenegro. Perfect for a long summer day or after a great meal.

Don’t be afraid to try this cocktail, by using Cynar and Montenegro, you end up with a cocktail that you’ll want one after another. 




  • 1 1/2 oz Cynar
  • 1 1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 3/4 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 oz of Ginger Beer
  • 44 ml of Cynar 
  • 44 ml of Amaro Montenegro 
  • 22 ml of freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • 88 ml of Ginger Beer 

How to Make

This is a shaken cocktail. 

Simple combine all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker (I prefer a boston shaker). Add ice and shake until contents are combined and chilled. 

Strain into a Collins Glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
