The green bottle


How about a nice glass of fermented artichoke juice? Okay, it may not sound appetizing, but trust us when we say that Cynar , a one-of-a-kind cordial derived in large part from artichokes, is a great sip. It falls into that special category of Italian-made spirits known as bitters — drinks that work to whet your appetite or that soothe your stomach after a hearty meal (Campari is the classic example and the Campari folks are the ones who also produce Cynar). Admittedly, while artichokes are green, Cynar is actually brownish in color, but it still has that “green” taste. Recently, a high-proof edition (35% alcohol) of Cynar ($35) has come on the market — and it’s the one we prefer sipping.
