1 1⁄2 oz Genever
3⁄4 oz Cardamaro
1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄4 oz Curaçao
1 twst Orange peel

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with an orange twist.


I was inspired by the Cynar-curaçao combination, and I thought about how well Genever works with each. Thus, I selected it as a base spirit, and for a fourth component, I opted for Cardamaro which has melded well with Genever before. For a name, I selected the Goblins Turned to Stone from a collection of Dutch fairy tales.
