Mirto Mirtillo

 OK, I have to admit, this year's Christmas Liqueur came out DAMNED good, even if I do say so myself! This is my take on a traditional Sardinian "Mirto," a traditional myrtle berry amaro flavored with rosemary. Due to the lack of available myrtle berries in NYC, I used wild Maine blueberries, blueberry honey, and blueberry syrup instead of simple syrup. The flavors expand with each sip!

This could top my Dark Sweet Cherry Amaro from a few years ago.
