Tammy Coxen has a passion for classic cocktails, and shares her drink creation expertise during monthly classes at A2's The Last Word. "My pattern in life is to [discover] something I find fascinating, learn everything I can about it, and then teach it to other people," Coxen says.  On Monday, January 28, she'll introduce Italian bittersweet herbal liqueurs, Amaros, to your repetoire during her Amaro Amore class. Campari, Averna and Fernet Branca will be a few of the spirits you'll use to learn some classy, not-too-sweet cocktail recipes. Amaro, which is the Italian word for "sour" or "bitter", is a welcome end to many meals in Italy and are "so complex and interesting," Coxen says. "They have a lot of layers of flavor, a lot of different botanicals. It's just a really interesting group of spirits [that offer] lots of cocktail opportunities."
