1 oz Punt e Mes
1 oz Cynar
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe. Garnish with a Luxardo Maraschino cherry.
Two Saturdays ago for a night cap, I looked to Imbibe Magazine's new issue and spotted the Nassau Street Cocktail as an interesting apple Negroni variation. Chris Frankel of Houston's Spare Key concocted this three parter plus bitters and used Cynar as the amaro as have the Trident, Urban Anxiety, and the Ardent Spirit. Instead of vermouth, Chris utilized Punt e Mes which I frequently ask for when I get a Negroni.
