Bijou des Alpes

1 12 oz Gin
1 oz Cardamaro
1 oz Genepy, Dolin Genepy des Alpes
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
Stir, strain, coupe.
I used Death's Door Gin, but feel free to experiment, as different gins will bring out different notes in the Cardamaro and Genepy, as will different bitters.
A variation of a bijou with Genepy substituted for Chartreuse and the wine-based Cardamaro subbed for the sweet vermouth.
