Bronxathon: Cynar Bronx

Making good on my threat to try different amari in place of the Bronx Cocktail’s sweet vermouth, I’ve hauled out the Cynar. It’s light and summery here, and easy drinking. The bitter vegetal taste of this artichoke-based amaro compliments the trace of pith from the orange, resolving one of the Bronx’s basic problems. The little cinnamon note at the end is barely noticeable but it’s there. Easy but not dumb.

Cynar Bronx
  • 2 oz gin (Bombay)
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth (Dolin Dry)
  • 1//2 oz Cynar
  • 3/4 oz orange juice
  • 2 dashes Fee Bros Orange Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
