rockin' like bamboo

1 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
3/4 oz Blanc Vermouth (Dolin)
3/4 oz Lustau East India Solera Sherry
1/2 oz Cynar
1/4 oz Byrrh Quinquina

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
One of the other recipes that caught my eye in the most recent issue of Imbibe Magazine was the Rockin' Like Bamboo in an article that presented three modern riffs on the classic Bamboo Cocktail. This one was crafted by Greg Moreno of Ward III in Manhattan, and it was a fuller and sweeter variation that reminded me on paper and in the glass more of an Adonis. Once prepared, the Rockin' Like Bamboo conjured up an orange, grape, and cherry nose. Next, caramel and grape on the sip led into grape and plum flavors with an intriguing level of bitter herbal complexity on the swallow.
