1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 oz Campari
1 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano
1 ds Orange cream citrate
1 twst Orange peel

Stir, strain, rocks, twist.


Plantes Vertes suggests a dash of Angostura to balance out her homemade orange cream citrate, which she says is rather sweet, but this may not be an issue with the Bittermens product and depending on your palate. This is a minor variation on Nick Caruana's Herban Botanist, which calls for an ounce of Cynar and no Campari: http://drinkstraightup.com/2013/05/28/variations-the-negroni/
