3/4 oz Cold River Gin
1/2 oz Amaro Nonino
1/2 oz Earl Grey Tea Syrup
1/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a flute glass. Top with ~3 oz Lambise Belgian Lambic.
A few Tuesdays ago, Andrea and I were in Central Square, and we headed over to Craigie on Main for a nightcap where bartenders Ann Thompson and Jack Styczynski were behind the bar. For a drink, I asked Ann for the Apparition, a beer cocktail created by beverage director Jared Sadoian. Once prepared, it offered juniper and bergamot aromas from the gin and Earl Grey tea syrup, respectively; over time, the nose gained funk notes from the beer that worked rather well with the orangy ones from the tea. Next, the sip shared carbonated caramel and malty flavors with a lot of body and mouthfeel, and the swallow began with gin followed by herbal notes and a bergamot finish.
