About this Cocktail
The Pretentious cocktail came about as a joke, trying to figure out what clichés are all too common in modern mixology. The resulting drink turned out to be pretty tasty.
1.5 oz rye whiskey
0.5 oz the most elaborate syrup behind the bar
2-3 dashes the most elaborate bitters behind the bar
Stir rye, syrup, and bitters with ice. Rinse cocktail glass with Fernet, discarding excess. Strain drink into glass. Garnish with flamed orange peel.
