de palma cocktail

1 oz Citadelle Gin (Nolet's Silver)
1 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe, and garnish with orange oil.

In looking for a nightcap a few Sundays ago, I turned to the large format section of Food & Wine: Cocktails 2015 that I had previously passed over. There, I was drawn in by the De Palma Cocktail crafted by Sean Woods of Dead Horse Hill in Worcester. By scaling the original down eight fold to the above recipe, I was able to make this Negroni-esque tribute to Brian De Palma, the director of the movie Scarface, as a single serving.
The De Palma presented an orange and grape aroma. Next, grape with a hint of cherry on the sip transitioned into gin and bitter orange on the swallow with a nutty and herbal finish.
