1⁄2 oz Lemon juice (+ a scant more)
1⁄2 oz Orgeat
1⁄4 oz Amaretto, Luxardo
1⁄4 oz Cynar

Shake, strain into coupe. Garnish with a long lemon peel curled into the glass


The was designed to build almond aromas in straightforward (Amaretto, Orgeat) and oblique (the rum, the Cynar) ways. This works equally well with Rogue's Hazelnut rum.
