1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1/2 oz Liqueur Amaro (Averna)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 tsp Toasted Caraway Seeds (*)
Muddle toasted caraway seeds in a Collins glass. Add all liquid ingredients, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix. Float a barspoon of Angostura Bitters over the top for garnish.
As I mentioned during the Delores Park Swizzle entry, the drink book handed out by the Secret Sherry Society had some rather delicious looking drinks. The one we made Tuesday last week was one by Boston's own Corey Bunnewith, and like the Delores Park, his drink was also a swizzle. I used Averna for the "Liqueur Amaro" in the recipe; however, I just noticed that DrinkBoston listed it as the more floral Meletti amaro in the posting last December.
(*) Caraway seeds will pop when they are roasted (not a major deformation like popcorn, but it is audible and they jump a little). I roasted until almost half of seeds had popped. When served, the seeds at the bottom of the drink might be a nuisance when using a straw. Perhaps muddling the seeds in a mixing glass, adding all but the ice and bitters, shaking, and straining through a tea strainer over the Collins glass filled with crushed ice might be a better option.
