  • A great complex stirred gin-based drink that uses a relatively common set of ingredients. More than the sum of its parts.
  • Incredible martini variant. strongly recommend the terroir; the pine-y flavors are fantastics with the ginger and savory cynar notes
  • Delicious. Takes the place of a Negroni. Made with Dolin Dry Vermouth. Rich, complex. Spicy kick. Robust and delicate at the same time. Gorgeous copper color.

Comments

I was reluctant to try this because 1/2 oz of ginger liqueur scared me a bit, but I decided to go for it as I love the other 3 ingredients. I really enjoyed this very herbaceous, bitter and somewhat spicy cocktail, however it needs a better name. Unless you have an extreme sentimental attachment to the name (and listening to music while making it doesn't count), I propose the name Gasparro, named after the designer of the Kennedy half dollar.
