A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

Trainspotter

Posted by Craig E. Created by Thomas Newcomb, The Continental Room, Fullerton, CA via Gaz Regan.
Instructions

Stir, strain, up, garnish.

Notes

The ingredient list would suggest flavors going in many different directions, but they hold together nicely. Well balanced.

History

Newcomb considers this a twist on a Brooklyn. He named it after the Trainspotting movie.

From the Knowledge Vault

The Flight of the Negroni

The Negroni is indomitable. Attack it with skewed ratios, and it rallies. Violate the ingredients, and it stubbornly persists. I can’t think of another drink that you can screw up so thoroughly and still enjoy the result.

This history of the Negroni is disputed, but probably dates to 1919, where the Americano was stiffened by substituting gin for the soda water. Regardless of exactly who created the drink and when, the Negroni is the King of bitter cocktails. If you spy a bottle of Campari on the backbar, the bartender probably knows how to make a Negroni.

    @noksagt You are correct, an email with the OP confirmed "author's original creation" is right.
    I'll probably stir this rather than shake when I try it. Cheers!

    Hi all –

    Regarding a question in the comments here: my allspice dram and CdV were homemade so that may explain the surprising translucence of this drink.
