1/2 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/2 oz Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)
1/2 oz Cynar
2 dash Celery Bitters
2 drop Salt Tincture (1 pinch Salt)
Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Tuesdays ago, I revisited a Wall Street Journal article about salt in cocktails and decided upon the Song of Solomon by Dave Kupchinsky of Eveleigh in West Hollywood. The drink came across like a Fourth Regiment given the celery bitters crossed with a Bensonhurst. Moreover, I have enjoyed how salt modulates Cynar into something herbal but not funky such as in the Deep Six.
