1 1⁄2 oz Rum, El Dorado 12
1⁄2 oz Cynar 70
1⁄2 oz Amaro, dell'Etna

Stir with Ice and serve in a chilled glass


If you don't have D'Ell Etna, I might try Lucano, Abano or another Amaro that isn't so heavy on the orange flavors.


I found the Italian Conquistador a bit too sweet and orangey for my taste, so modified for more complexity and less sweetness.

Had only Angostura 7 y.o. and Amaro Lazzaroni - too dry for me, leans toward Fernet bitterness. Increasing sweet part next time.
