Yep, you are right. I got confused cuz they look so much alike. They actually taste a lot alike too to me. I forgot this was on my 3 day cruise where they didn't have bitter n blanc so I had to go without. It was horrible that they made me cruise without my favorite dessert.
Luxardo Bitter Bianco shares the same infusions of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and citrus fruits with Luxardo Bitter. Before the blending process however, most of these infusions are distilled, process which turns the color into transparent, and changes slightly the flavor profile. An infusion of Roman Absinth (Wormwood) is added at the end to enhance the bitter taste, giving the ivory color to the product. Luxardo Bitter Bianco is brilliantly suited to twist classic cocktails such as Negroni which becomes a Negroni Bianco, a Paloma into a Paloma Bianco etc. but it can also be enjoyed neat or over ice as a classic aperitivo.
Depending on the context, we are equally big fans of the Negroni, the Aperol Spritz, and many a cocktail made with Lillet blanc. The Unusual Negroni borrows a bit from each of those traditions and holds its own as a fun alternative, perfect for when the weather warms up.
The original recipe calls for equal parts, but I prefer the balance of this drink with a little more gin, up to 2:1:1. It's up to you!If you like, you can batch this cocktail for a party. To make eight drinks, combine one cup gin, one cup Aperol, one cup Lillet blanc, and ½ cup water in a pitcher up to 24 hours before serving time. Stir, cover, and chill in the refrigerator. At serving time, divide among glasses and garnish each with an orange slice.
On the palate the wine is dry, with medium+ acidity, medium alcohol and body, and medium+ intensity of flavor. We got an upfront kick of a bitter citrus fruit that we had trouble describing, but ultimately settled on lime pith. From there we detected notes of green apple, grapefruit, and the pith stayed through to the finish.
This cocktail gets its beautiful hue from red bitters, also known as aperitivo. Campari from Italy is the best-known, but made-in-France Dolin bitter de Chambéry is wonderful, although not available in the U.S. However American-made Bruto Americano and Forthave Red Aperitivo are excellent. Cappelleti is another red bitters from Italy.
Bitter Bianco is great on the rocks, in a spritz, subbed for Campari in many classic recipes, and perhaps most popularly, in place of gentian-forward bitter liqueurs in the modern classic, the White Negroni.
Fernet-Branca (Italian pronunciation: [ferˌnɛtˈbraŋka]) is an Italian brand of fernet, a style of amaro or bitters. It was formulated in Milan in 1845, and is manufactured there by Fratelli Branca Distillerie.
Fernet-Branca is produced according to the original recipe.[a] It is made from 27 herbs and other ingredients; its complete formula is a trade secret. Sources have reported that its recipe includes chinese rhubarb, aloe ferox (bitter aloe), cinchona, chocolate, quinine and angelica. The Branca Distillery states on its web site that the drink contains "Rhubarb from China, Gentian from France, Galanga from India or from Sri Lanka, (and) Chamomile from Europe [or] Argentina", as well as linden (tiliae flos), iris, saffron, zedoary, myrrh and cinchona.
Lillet comes in both a white (blanc) and red (rouge) version. The wine used is either a white or red Bordeaux, and both versions use the same flavorings. On the other hand, vermouth uses white wine for both its red and white versions. In this case, the difference is provided by varying the herbs.
Lillet Blanc (pronounced Lee-Lay) is an aperitif from the Bordeaux region of France that was created in 1887 as a tonic for whatever ailed you. It comes in white or red versions, the red version being created in the 1960s, and is in the same family as vermouth, but it has subtle differences. The formula for Lillet contains wine, orange peel and quinine, which provides the slightly bitter aperitif quality that has made this drink so popular.
In 1985 the Lillet Blanc formula was redeveloped to meet modern grape growing methods and to also make the aperitif more palatable to the modern consumer. They made it less bitter and reduced the sweetness. This created a more vermouth like drink.
This sauce is packed with flavor from reducing shallots in a syrup of orange and lemon juice along with a healthy dose of dry white wine. The orange and lemon zest is added to bring even more aromatics to the sauce. Drizzle this beurre blanc on some air fryer tilapia, smoked wild turkey breast, or some fresh air fryer asparagus.
Ultimately, you only need a few simple ingredients to make a beurre blanc. The secret is all in how you whip it up, quite literally! Keep reading to find out how to ensure the most creamy and delicious beurre blanc.
If you try to reheat the beurre blanc, you may notice that it falls out of emulsification. Once the orange lemon butter sauce has been in the fridge, it will solidify. At that point, I like to think of it as more of a compound butter. Just take a scoop of it and place it on top of some grilled veggies or fish. I have even spread some of this sauce on a freshly baked sliced of sourdough.
A smooth and creamy orange lemon butter sauce that goes perfectly with seafood and poultry. Like in a typical beurre blanc, a crisp, dry white wine is used as the base of the sauce along with some orange and lemon juice to bring a bright citrus flavor.

The team at Luxardo uses the liqueur by default in a Negroni Bianco recipe (see below). They also suggest using it in a white spritz recipe; theirs is made with Prosecco and Bitter Bianco. Below, check out a few more creative ways to use the new juice:
Italy- Revival of Luxardo Bitter Bianco is based on Luxardo's 1930s recipe. Fruity aromas with notes of oranges and hints of spices & botanicals. Round and smooth on the palate. Best enjoyed in a White Negroni, Winter Spritz, or Bitter Bianco & Soda. Awarded Gold Medal at BSA 2019.
Fill a mixing glass halfway with ice. Add the tequila, maraschino liqueur, both bitters and the agave nectar. Stir vigorously for 30 seconds, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist the lemon peel over the drink, rub the rim of the glass, then drop it in as a garnish.
Place one bar spoon of Muscovado Sugar in an Old Fashioned glass. Drop Orange and Burlesque bitters in sugar, add 1/4 oz water, and add 3-4 cubes of ice. Stir for about 5-7 seconds. Pour in 3/4 oz Banks 5 Island Rum and 1.25 oz El Dorado 12 year old Rum. Garnish with a navel orange peel.
Fill a double old fashioned glass with ice and a small amount of Absinthe (Herbsaint or Ricard). Stir the rum, sugar cane syrup and bitters in an ice filled shaker glass. Dump the ice from the old fashioned glass and rotate the glass to ensure that the rinse coats the entire inside of the glass. Strain into the glass. Twist lemon peel over the glass and discard (do not put the twist in the glass).
Riffing off a classic Roman oxtail stew, coda alla vaccinara, with its characteristic sweet and sour note, the inclusion of bittersweet chocolate imbues this melt-in-the-mouth meaty braise with rich complexity, a hint of sweetness, and a silky, seductive consistency.

This deliciously simple cocktail was inspired by a drink from Frank Stitt at Highlands Bar and Grill in Birmingham, Alabama. A place I've never in my life been. But I spotted the recipe on Serious Eats and was immediately attracted to it given the grapefruit juice and the fact it's called The Great Gatsby. Which, you should know, is one of my top 3 favorite books of all time.
If you are unfamiliar with Lillet, I'm happy to share a little bit more with you! It's an aperitif from the Bordeaux region of France that's in the same family as vermouth. Lillet contains wine, orange peel, and quinine, which is what gives it the bitter kick. 2b1af7f3a8
