Amaro Meletti Review
By Adam Aslan


In Praise of Amaro: A review of Amaro Meltti I'm not sure how it all happened, but suddenly I am obsessed with amaros. While there are many amaros to choose from, Amaro Meletti provides one of the best values out there for those in search of a high quality amaro at a reasonable price. When tasting an amaro it is necessary to either be a well established veteran amaro drinker or to be able to taste many amaros in a single session to fully understand the substantial differences between each brand of the bitter liqueur.

The real question is just how far on the spectrum of bitterness is Amaro Meletti? To my taste buds, it is actually one of the most bitter amaros out there. Is that to say that it is not tasty? Of course not. Every amaro is a complex ride thru sensations of bitter and sweet. Amaro Meletti is just a bit more of a bite to it than some of the other amaros out there.

If it is a bit more astringent than other amaros it could be because it is one of the older Amaros out there; it was created in 1870 by Silvio Meletti. With typical descriptors of herbal or medicinal a bit lacking in terms of a clear understand of what that could mean to the tastebuds a better description would probably be something like “ a bitter liqueur with a hint of orange and a slightly sweet finish.” One interesting aspect of Meletti is that it contains saffron, which is interesting since it is actually one of the cheaper amaros available in the US. Thus, one can feel both fancy and thrifty drinking Amaro Meletti. Saluti!

Tips for Tequila Drinking at Bossa Nova Civic Club
By Adam Aslan

If you are one of those people that finds themselves in Brooklyn and wanting to dance or chill in an authentic sort of gothy way, there are few options. A solid choice for tasty tequila and techno is Bossa Nova Civic Club. There are certain ways to go out to Bossa Nova Civic Club or as the Bushwick locals call it, “Bossa.” You can really go for it, kind of go for it, or even just not go for it at all. What is that you say? Why even talk about not going for it all? Where’s the fun in that? Well, because I just wanted to give an accurate range of options available in terms of “going in” at Bossa. Maybe I am going in too much on the mean, median, mode, range tip, but it’s good to be thorough about these things, right?

Maybe I am overall too much of a math and computer nerd, but I think it's important to note that Bossa offers delicious free ice water that is usually mixed with your choice of cucumber, lemon, or orange. Few venues offer such quality no cost options to hydrate. Also important to note, they have comfy circular booths to just kick back with some friends while listening to some pretty loud but not ear piercing music.
