I gather that's right, although I think to the extent the definitions mean anything at all, it's only in the context of distinguishing between the different DIY methods.

Right now ...



with Hella Bitters, ice and an orange twist.

Just picked up my first bottle of Cynar and given a Negroni is my favourite summer cocktail I made a variation, the Berlioni:

1 oz Broker's gin
3/4 Cynar
1/2 dry vermouth

Didn't have any oranges for the twist, but it was very enjoyable nevertheless. It would be a great introduction to the world of negroni-like bitter cocktails for people who don't normally appreciate that style of cocktail.

Try a Trident:

1 part Cynar
1 part dry sherry
1 part aquavite.

Couple dashes of peach bitters.

Sounds great, but I would have to get Aquavit which I can't get here. I do have a recipe for a drink using Cynar and Cherry Heering which I am looking forward to trying. If anyone else has recommendations for Cynar recipes I'm all ears.

Black Lodge

1 1/2 oz Michter's Rye
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Carpano Antica
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters

I might have to give this one a try but not with Regan's. I'm just not a fan and have been loving Bittercube and my own lately.

Don't have Cynar, was thinking of making this with Amer Picon instead, but figured it wouldn't work. Made a Vesper instead with Tempus Fugit Kina, still think it's an insipid cocktail but a couple of dashes of orange bitters (DeGoffs) made it ok. The TF was much better in a Vesper than Cocchi Americano, but I think the vodka dilutes the gin too much.

I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow night and will report back. I will probably use Fee Bros. West Indian Orange bitters.

Had a Hemingway Daiquiri tonight. Wonderful drink.

Only had Michter's Bourbon so used Rittenhouse rye. Added orange rind too. Very nice.

Booker's is a bad gin for negronis. Too big for the Campari, in my opinion.
post #14113 of 14353

I don't really like it very much generally.

post #14114 of 14353
Booker's is indeed a very weird gin. The brown colour is pretty unusual too.
post #14115 of 14353
What is Booker's? Broker's gin is clear as day.
