We knew it was great from the first bucket
Boomerang is a liqueur that combines fruit and flavor, sugar and fat and works with any base spirit to make a delicious, rich cocktail. It’s a more complex cherry liqueur with apricot, orange and walnut, sort of a chameleon, adapting to whatever base it is mixed with.
A “boomerang” is a gift from one bartender to another; a cocktail sent via a regular. It’s a sign of respect and an indication that the regular who delivers it is a good customer.
Boomerang was authored by Micah Melton, Beverage Director at the award winning The Aviary, in Chicago, part of the Alinea group.
BroVo’s Boomerang is a complex cherry liqueur, rich and thick, and with lots of flavor.

Combining cherry, apricot, walnut, cinnamon, orange, vanilla and peppercorn, it is then sweetened to 20% sugar with 30% ABV. We start with our amaro base, a distillate that combines NGS with rhubarb and is then aged in used whiskey barrels. We transfer this base to tanks, where we next infuse dried cherry, apricot, walnut, orange, and vanilla into the base. We balance the base, then add cinnamon, peppercorn, and cayenne to finish. It is mixed with agave nectar and rests racks.
Enjoy it in a Blood & Sand cocktail, or try it mixed with your favorite bourbon. Boomerang is our most versatile liqueur- you can mix it to bring out any one of the eight flavors in it.
