1 oz Navy strength gin, Hayman's Royal Dock
1 oz Calvados, Boulard
3 oz Cynar 70

Stir, rocks, big cube

  • Oh, and it should be clearly noted that this recipe is for TWO servings. Otherwise, the Cynar 70 and navy strength gin will leave ONE in a world of hurt.

Are the quantities right? Seems to me like this would fill two rocks glasses with big rocks.

Yes, and thank you for noticing.  My error. The quantities as written are indeed for two drinks.
