About this Cocktail

This is a cocktail from Kevin Burke of Colt and Gray in Denver, Co. See more info at The Straight Up (drinkstraightup.com)

Notes:
Crisp. Bitter citrus, caramel, salt water on the nose. Smooth on the tongue, Bottecchia is light on the front end, followed by a blast of herbs, citrus, earth and raisins. The finish is fresh, minty and bitter with a salty taste that lingers on your tongue. This one is surprisingly lighter than you might expect given it’s ingredients. The color is also beautiful, dark and inky.

Ingredients:
  • 1oz Campari
  • 1oz Cynar
  • 1oz Fernet-Branca
  • Kosher Salt
  • Grapefruit Twist
Preparation:

Add the Campari, Cynar and Fernet-Branca to a chilled mixing glass. Throw in a pinch of kosher salt and stir to dissolve. Add ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Express the oils from the grapefruit twist over the drink and then discard.
