1 oz Contratto Aperitif
1 bsp Herbal liqueur, Pernod
1 sli Orange

Muddle a thin slice of orange with the Pernod in a rocks glass. Add the rest, stir, and then add a large cube/sphere of ice.


Not nearly as strong as you'd think it would be, both in power and flavor. Feel free to swap Aperol or any other low ABV aperitivo for the Contratto (stuff in the Campari range will not work).


The name is Italian and Jamaican patois for Weak & Strong. I speak neither language; feel free to correct me if some of that feels off to you.
