1 twst Orange peel (express and garnish)
Instructions

Stir liquor and lemon with ice, strain, pour over rocks, garnish.

Notes

Nice balance of sweet and bitter in the original - I added a teensy bit of sour, floral nose and deeper spicy undertone with the rum. Try it with rum and the original cachaca for a sweeter drink.

History

This is a riff on the house Amaro Cocktail at La Sirena Clandestina as found on Imbibe magazine website. Their version is good, but mine is less sweet and has a richer flavor.
