This is probably the easiest application to upgrade your beer game at home by adding some unique bitterness and sweetness, and it can be adjusted to your preferred taste any way that you want. The only thing that you really need to know is the most basic of bartending skills: pouring things into other things.
You will need:
12-ounce bottle or can of your preferred pilsner or lager
1 ounce Italian Amaro (I would recommend one with a little citrus to it, like Montenegro or Averna, though a little pine and smoke from Braulio would be nice on a cold day.)
A pint glass or Collins glass
How you make it:
1. Pour the Amaro into the glass, then fill the rest with the beer.
2. Or: Take a healthy sip from the can or bottle, then simply pour the Amaro directly into the vessel.
