artichokes vs. booze

b grubbs | Apr 24, 2002 12:50 AM

So Spring came to the Upper Valley briefly and we found ourselves cooking artichokes. One always hears about how the artichoke smacks up your tastebuds so they don't take the wine proper, so we ended up drinking what we were drinking before dinner -- the humble Americano (1 to 1 Campari and sweet vermouth) -- and damned if it wasn't bitter enough to get along famously with the artichokes.
Then we got to wondering if that artichoke-derived Cynar liqueur might not be a good accompaniment as well, but there wasn't any around, and neither of us had ever tasted the stuff, so maybe somebody else has an opinion?
