dutch totem

2 oz Bols Genever
1 oz Amaro Ramazzotti
1/2 oz Chestnut Honey Syrup
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Absinthe

Shake with ice, strain into a Tiki mug, fill with crushed ice, garnish with a pineapple slice and freshly grated nutmeg, and add a straw.
Two Wednesdays ago, I ventured down to Bar Mezzana for a cocktail, and I was lured into one of their amaro-forward tropical drinks called the Dutch Totem. Once prepared, it offered a nutmeg aroma that led into lime, caramel, and honey notes on the sip. Next, the swallow began with Genever, pineapple, cola-herbal, and wormwood flavors and ended with a pineapple and honey finish.
