    How sweet of you to say Peter. There is one issue with the recipe however. I would try to get at least 2oz. of Cynar in that thing.
  • Peter Bodenheimer
    Thanks for the heads up, I'll modify the recipe now. Feel free to add some of your other creations...I'm specifically interested in The Nervous Light of Sunday (aka best cocktail name ever).

    Yusko doesnt even know the recipes to his own drinks. 1.5 oz of Cynar is THE correct amount.

    Wow. Ordered this off the 'Cure Classics' list tonight, and now I'm hooked. So. Damn. Tasty.

    Just made this and love it. I was looking for a drink with cynar as the star and this fit the bill. I didn't have a spare atomiser for the angostura garnish and I went with the creators suggested 2oz of cynar. Will try the 1.5 oz version next.

    Had a few of these while in New Orleans at Cure. Fabulous
