Day 67: 1492

  • 1 1/2 oz rye
  • 3/4 oz Campari
  • 3/4 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1 dash chocolate mole bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • pinch salt
  • lemon twist

When I’m not sure what to make for someone I’ve taken to asking what base liquor they want and then searching on Kindred. This came up when searching for rye and I was intrigued. I think the salt really makes this one.

Day 47: Company Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz Averna
  • 1 1/2 oz Campari
  • 1 1/2 oz Cynar

William went to Midnight Cowboy last week with some colleagues and brought me back a special menu from a guest bartender, which of course the cats promptly chewed up. I managed to salvage it enough to be able to read some of the recipes, and this one stood out immediately as something that Dane would like. It’s bitter and vegetal and earthy and he loved it.
