About this Cocktail

This is an original from The Straight Up (drinkstraighup.com), featuring ingredients from 6 continents.

Cardamom, chickpeas, tomatoes and citrus on the nose. A smooth yet complex blend of herbs, tomatoes, cardamom, raisins, leather allspice, a light touch of maple syrup, and hint of smoke. The finish is light spice, bitter and vegetal. A low proof yet meaty beverage that works as well before dinner as it does after.

  • .75oz Cynar
  • .75oz Tawny Port
  • .5oz Templeton Rye
  • 1 brspn Lapsang Souchong Demerara Syrup
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 6 drops Moroccan Bitters

Add the Cynar, Tawny Port, Templeton Rye (or other 80 proof Rye), Lapsang Souchong Demerara Syrup, and Angostura Bitters to a chilled mixing glass. Add Antarctic ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Carefully drop the Moroccan Bitters around the edge of the glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
