12 oz Cynar
1 twst Lemon peel (flamed, as garnish)
Instructions

Notes
With mostly Cognac, the spicy vermouth and bitter Cynar tones are more muted than, say, in a Negroni. Good, slow-drinking, slightly challenging. Made with Couvoisier VSOP.

  • Very complex flavors, slight hint of root beer, but not enough to dissuade me. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Maison Rouge VSOP and Cocchi di Torino. Cocoa flavors come through strong. — ☆☆☆☆
