(thanks to Avery Glasser of Bittermens for the correct drink name... I thought Misty had given me a year for the drink name but ADD girl that I am, I didn't hear nor retain it!)
1 1/2 oz Rye
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
3/4 oz Campari
1-2 dash Xocolatl Mole Bitters
Man, I've really been a teetotaler the past couple of weeks! It's unintentional; the weather has me going for teas I suppose...
Last night we had dinner plans with a (straightedge) couple we know, however they had to cancel because of a cold, I was in the city anyhow for an appointment... so we went over to Green Street instead! Misty made me this drink, the name of which escapes me. Andrea had told me about the small-batch bitters from Bittermens Bitters, and I was keen to try this particular flavor. She gave credit to John from no 9 for the recipe. Like with a Negroni (may favorite go-to drink!), I found that it got extra tasty after a few minutes of warming up -- maybe it's just me -- but it was a lovely balance, with the spicier ingredients propping up the Campari nicely.
