Amaro CioCiaro is a digestif amaro named after an old term for the central region of Italy. Invented in 1873, the recipe is a secret, but is based on bitter orange. It is dark brown in color, moderately sweet, and 60 proof.
CioCiaro can be used as a close substitute to the not yet imported Amer Picon. With a bit of tweaking, a very close approximation can be made.
