Cynar Cocktail

Cynar is interesting stuff. It’s described as an artichoke liqueur, which sounds exotic, though I’m not sure I’d know the artichoke was in there unless you told me. It seems of a type with bitter aperitifs like Campari and Torani Amer.

This cocktail is a simple one. Today was warm and sunny in San Francisco—a day for taking it easy.

2 oz gin
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz orange juice

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. I garnished it with an orange wheel, though an orange twist is nice too.
