Old FlameThe Caricature Cocktail initially offered an orange and juniper aroma that later gained blood orange-like notes from the Campari entering the picture as the drink warmed up. The vermouth's grape joined the citrus notes from the orange liqueur and grapefruit on the sip, and the swallow began with Campari softened by the Cointreau and finished with the gin botanicals.
