2 1⁄2 oz Rye
1⁄2 oz Cynar

Stir, strain, up.


An orange twist brightens this up and a Luxardo cherry suits the theme. Don't use RIttenhouse bonded unless you want to end up under the table.

  • Too sweet for me at first, but grew on me. The Russell's 6 year Rye I used may have been too sweet.
  • Made on 1/10/15 w/Old Overholt. Nice. Would make again
  • Also made with Old Overholt. Nice, spice and cherry (the Cynar is rather subdued). A little syrupy. — ★★★★
