1 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a small dash of Angostura Bitters.
For my second drink at Backbar, I was curious about the Choke Up with the menu subtitle was "Step up to the plate and try this Whiskey Sour..." Since the Deep Six, a Cynar South Side, and similar cocktails have been such successes, I was definitely looking forward to a whiskey spin on things and requested one from bartender Joe Cammarata.
