For my drink at Casa B in Somerville, I asked bartender Taso Paptsoris what he had been making with Cynar lately since I was impressed with the Cynar-laden drink that he crafted for the USBG-Boston aperitifs and digestifs event's mix-off a few months ago. One of the drinks Taso suggested was a Bourbon-based one called Not the First Cyn that rounded out the recipe with fruity notes from Cherry Heering and rhubarb bitters.
