Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
I was inspired by a Sfumato/Zucca + Aperol drink called the Knife to a Gun Fight. I ended up dropping the rabarbaro element and latching on to its Aperol. With that, I made a hybrid of the Prospect Park, one of my favorite Manhattan riffs created in Boston, (Aperol + Maraschino) with the Negroni that Wasn't (Aperol + Cynar) that I had earlier in the week. Between the political debates being that night as well as the Smith & Cross in the mix, I dubbed this one the Elephant in the Room.
