Carciofo Sour
Saved by 16 People
About this Cocktail

Carciofo is Italian for artichoke, and this drink is a sour using the Italian amaro Cynar, which is made with artichokes. I played with the proportions on this one enough that I eventually ran out of lemons, which was fortunate because it's surprisingly good with some orange juice.

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 oz cynar
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz egg white
Preparation:

Build in shaker, dry-shake vigorously, add a few cubes and shake until chilled, strain over a big cube in an old fashioned glass, or something similar. Finish with an orange swath.

    Paired very well with lemon steamed artichokes (made garlicky mayo with the egg yolks leftover after this recipe) and a salmon filet.

    Sounds delicious, Renee.
