1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Aviation
3⁄4 oz Cynar
1 twst Lemon peel

Stir, strain, serve up. Express the lemon peel or omit it for a more "clean" mouthfeel at the cost of some dimensionality.


Great if you're looking for a bitter, herbal, Negroni-style cocktail, but without the cherry syrup notes. Would generally recommend using a less juniper-forward gin; the Cynar is the star of the show here.

Maybe it is due to using Beefeater, but the ingredients didn't merge for me. Lots of individual flavors of the liquor without a new flavor of the drink as a whole. But I'll try again with non-Juniper forward gin and see if I have the same result.
