Didn't believe it, but this does taste more Martini than Cin Cyn. Not my favorite. Could be worth trying with newer Dry Vermouth. It was borderline.
Used well gin (Tanq+Junipero+Botanist+Barr Hill blend), 3 small dashes (~1 dash) of Hella Citrus bitters, and grapefruit peel swath. — ★★★★
This tastes better than a plain old Negroni with dry vermouth.
More interesting than a martini, but there are better negroni variants. The Cynar does work well here though; I probably prefer this to the similar ABCDEF. — ★★★
Flavor-wise, more of a Martini variation than a Negroni/Cin-Cyn twin. Gin-forward, dry vermouth (I used Dolin) very prominent, with the Cynar adding viscosity, dark flavor notes, mild sweetness, and bitterness. A dash of oran — ★★★★
Very nice perfect Negroni variation. I was out of nice oranges, so I added a dash of Regans' and used a long swatch of grapefruit.The grapefruit complimented the Cynar nicely. — ★★★★
I made this today (accidentally), In trying to make a Negroni variation, I mixed equal parts Plymouth Gin, Cynar and Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth. After tasting, I decided it needed some Regan's Orange bitters. I shook it with ice (I know) and served it up in a cocktail glass. Tasty.
I made and rated this drink before, but with no comment. At that time, I made the drink as written, and rated it at 3.5 (I'm not a big fan of dry vermouth). This time, being out of Tanqueray, I turned to Citadelle, which is more floral-forward, and definitely less juniper. Also, I used 1/4 oz each of Dolin dry vermouth and Vya blanco vermouth.
The change in both gin and vermouth made, for me, a more satisfying cocktail--one that I rated at 4.0. For those who are adventerous, you may want to give these changes a try. Magellan gin should do just fine as a sub for Citadelle. Bon Voyage!
