The bar menu at Portland restaurant Ned Ludd is full of drinks that hint at bar manager Jeremy Wilson's devotion to amari and other bittersweet liqueurs. Our favorite of his concoctions features Becherovka, a traditional Czech liqueur with a pleasant bitterness and a spicy, herbal flavor. To it he adds rum, homemade honey-ginger syrup infused with cardamom and cinnamon, two kinds of bitters, a splash of tart lime juice, and a bit of soda water. The resulting drink is both warming and refreshing—the perfect accompaniment to a chilly fall evening.Laura Sant
