Combine fluids over ice in mixing glass, stir for 30 secs, strain into coupe, garnish with lemon twist.


Name is Italian for "rosy joke". Erik Ellestad used Vergano Americano in place of Dubonnet for his Dandy from the Savoy Cocktail book, and I took liberties with the receipt. Rye spice, fruit, bitter wormwood finish. The Pear eau de vie mellows the rye and enhances mouthfeel.


Flung about with wild abandon à la minute 6/4/11.
