1 1⁄2 oz Averna
1⁄2 oz Cynar
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
2 oz Soda water (to top)
1 sli Orange (wheel, as garnish)

Shake all ingredients except soda water and orange garnish with ice, strain into Collins glass with fresh ice, and top with soda water. Stir with straw and garnish with orange slice.


Recipe is to top with soda water. My Collins glasses are around 11oz, and roughly 2 oz of soda topped it off for me.
