2 oz Cachaça
1⁄2 oz Amaro Abano, Luxardo
1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 oz Bénédictine
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1 twst Lemon zest

Shake, strain, rocks, low-ball, lemon twist garnish


From an idea from Eastern Standard. Cynar, Lime, and bitters are my additions. Quite bitter. Good cocktail to linger over. Substitute other pie-spice amari, such as Ramazzotti as desired. Abano has a strong black pepper top note.


Cachaca, Benedictine, "Luxardo Amaro", which I assume means Luxardo's Abano amaro.

  • Made with LeBlon. The hogo is dominant and accentuated by all of the bitter elements. I'm not a fan of rhum agricole / cachaca as the dominant flavor - 2 stars for me personally, but pushed up to 3 as hogo-lovers may enjoy. — ★★★
  • Bitter. Slow drinking. Complex. Might benefit from a top-shelf Cachaca (Leblon?) — ★★★★
