1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Cynar
Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube. Garnish with a cherry (omitted).
After the Kangaroo, I switched speeds and picked up a newer book, Food & Wines: Cocktails 2013, for inspiration. The drink that called out to us was Sean Kenyon's Old Ironsides that he crafted at William & Graham in Denver. The combination of Cherry Heering and Cynar seemed appealing for it worked well in drinks like Not the First Cyn, and I felt their richness would pair well with Kraken spiced rum.
