3⁄4 oz Scotch (Smoky blend or smoky single malt)
3⁄4 oz Barbados Rum (Or other non-funky moderately high pot still English-style rum)
1⁄2 oz Amaro, Cappelletti Sfumato Rabarbaro (Or Zucca)
1 twst Orange peel (Flamed as garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a flamed orange twist.


Inspired by how well rabarbaro like Zucca & Sfumato pair with Punt e Mes, I crafted a 1919 riff that I named after the Great Boston Fire. I selected Scotch for half the spirit after how well rabarbaros pair with Scotch in the Caustic Negroni.


A drink crafted at home instead of at my work bar.
