3/4 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
For my last drink on Sunday night, bartender Will Thompson wanted to return to Cynar liqueur in a Daiquiri-like drink he developed using Smith & Cross Rum. While most of the time Cynar is used in straight spirits drinks, Cynar does pair up well with citrus such as in the Mortal Sunset (orange), Peralta (grapefruit, lemon), and Wayne Curtis' Tango #2 variation (orange). As for lime juice, the only one I have had before was the Violet Hour's Kyle Davidson's Art of Choke that Maksym Pazuniak made me at the Cure Bar, and the lime did work well with the Cynar.
