Frasca Food & Wine; Boulder, CO

On an annual staff trip to Friuli, Italy, the Frasca employees discovered Cynar, a bitter liqueur made from 13 herbs and plants, including the artichoke (Cynara scolymus). Adding limoncello and club soda dilutes Cynar's intense flavor and gives the drink an iced-tea color.
