mutiny suppressor

1 oz Amaro Nardini
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Navy Strength Gin (Hayman's Royal Dock)
1/4 oz Galliano

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass with a large cube. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

Two Fridays ago, I opened up Food & Wine: Cocktails 2013 and honed in on the recipes crafted by Joaquín Simó. The one that called out the most was the Mutiny Suppressor, and on Manhattan's Pouring Ribbons' menu, they use the same Hayman's overproof gin that I reached for.
The Mutiny Suppressor greeted the nose with bright grapefruit oils, and the sip proffered grape and caramel notes. The swallow was an intriguing chocolate note from the Amaro Nardini with vanilla and anise from the Galliano, juniper from the gin, and other bitter herbal notes from the Punt e Mes and other ingredients.
