Nice balance of sour and bitter. Refreshing and Cynar keeps it from being too fruity.
1 12 oz Gin
12 oz Lime juice
14 oz Cynar
34 oz Grenadine
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
Shake, Double Strain, Up, Coupe
Use homemade Grenadine. Don't even bother if all you have is fake stuff. Grenadine is pretty easy to make!
From other users
  • Tart, cranberry-ish. The Cynar is ingenious here. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Did it with Rose's and then with homemade grenadine. 4 with the cheap stuff, 4.5 with the real stuff. The Cynar makes this drink. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Beefeater and lemon. Found the Gin maybe a touch too strong for the drink. Will try Aviation Gin instead on the next go! — ☆☆☆☆

Love love love this!!! Subbed

Love love love this!!! Subbed cardamaro for cynar and lemon for lime (all we had), homemade grenadine (made with a touch of orange and rose water), cherry bitters, definitely putting this one in rotation!
