Stew,

Love the thought of anejo tequila + Cynar playing together. What sweet vermouth do you recommend? Dolin might be nice...


My sweet vermouth of choice is Cocchi. Dolin could be nice, too! Carpano Antica might add a bit too much bitterness to an already bitter drink.


Really nice, well-balanced cocktail. Only had Cazadores reposado around, but it played nicely.


My changes address the questions or issues raised in the above three Comments. I used 1.5 oz El Tesoro anejo tequila, 1 oz Cynar, and 1 oz Dolin sweet vermouth. Also used Bitternens Hopped Grapefruit bitters and Angostura Orange bitters. And the lemon peel, of course. Great drink! Very smooth, but a tad too sweet for my taste. Perhaps 0.75 oz Cynar for less sweetness? Rated 4.5 as I made it. Enjoy!
