2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 oz Simple syrup (Demerera, 2:1)
1 twst Orange peel

Shake lightly - enough to marry the ingredients together (you're dealing with citrus, right!) but not enough to overly-dilute the ingredients.

Strain, into a rocks glass over a large ice cube - express the oils from a large swath of orange rind.


Bitters are 'house bitters' but I use Regan's.

I tried to re-create this cocktail as best I could - there's no recipe online to loot. This is my best guess. If anyone has connections to the folks at the Violet Hour, I welcome some fact-checking.


Was on the menu at the Violet Hour in Summer 2012
