This recipe is a wonderful introduction to Unicum, an herbal liqueur from Hungary that was re-released in the United States in 2013. The herbal blend of herbs and spices is unique and it is best compared to other amaros such as Averna.

The Emperor cocktail displays the digestif in a beautiful and simple way. In it, Unicum is delicately enhanced with sweet vermouth and orange curacao. This is a perfect drink to conclude a nice dinner party.
