Fig Fall Amaro Highball - in a highball glass garnished with a fresh fig garnish

Fall Amaro Highball

Get your fig on with this easy-going, simple, and delicious fall variation on the highball. Amaro subs in for whiskey as the base, creating a lower ABV cocktail that’s sweet with hints of bitterness and spice from the amaro and the allspice dram.
