1⁄2 oz Gin, Gordon's
1⁄2 oz Byrrh
1 oz Amaro Lucano (Lucano Anniversario)
1 twst Lemon peel (as garnish)

Stir; strain; up. Garnish with a folded lemon peel clipped to the rim so that it extends unsupported off the side of the glass.


The "Anniversario" bottle of the amaro came out a few years ago to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the distillery. It's a bit higher proof than their regular offering.


Signature drink for the 80th anniversary of the Society of Architectural Historians.
Credit to Sother Teague's Sharpie Mustache as proof of concept for a rye/gin/amaro/aperitif combo.

  • Very nice; 2:1 split base ~60% abv rye to counteract for 40% gin, otherwise to spec
  • Used Beefeater gin. Will use Tanqueray or a botanical gin next time. 4 stars
  • Didn't have Lucano Anniversario, so made with the standard Lucano and still quite nice. 4.5 if I could. — ★★★★
