  • Bitter and delicious. Great cynar drink. Not overpowering, but there. Surprisingly smooth. Maybe try juice from a half an orange?
  • Bitter but delicious; if you like negronis and cynar this will hit the spot. Don't forget to squeeze a little orange juice in; the orange and gin really play well together — ★★★★★
  • pretty good. I have everything needed for it. made it without a fresh orange (just juice and no garnish). Still good.
  • A Cynar negroni. The Peychauds improve it. — ★★★
  • 1/4/17: Made equal parts, with Carpano Antica. Really, really tasty. Slightly more sweet and less bitter version of a Negroni. 1/14/17: Made with Alessia vermouth. Also tasty. — ★★★★
  • Year Round Gin — ★
  • Pleasantly bitter with Punt e Mes. A couple of drops of saline work well. — ★★★★
  • Excellent! Definitely do the squeezed orange and the Peychaud's makes a fine difference! — ★★★★
  • Yes, Punt e Mes goes so nicely with Cynar. I use an orange twist and have not tried adding bitters yet. On the rocks is lovely. — ★★★★
  • Delicious with Punt e Mes. Upgraded to 5 stars. Very good. Similar to a Negroni, maybe a bit sweeter and slightly less bitter. Good on the rocks. — ★★★★★

Lovely- twice the gin, a bit more Cynar &, as noted, Punt e Mes, balances the sweetness- playing w/ Plymouth
