favela beach

2 oz Aged Cachaça (Seleta Gold)
1/2 oz Licor 43
1/4 oz Cocchi Americano
1 bsp Cynar
2 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I reached into my Food & Wine: Cocktails section of my library and extracted the 2013 book by chance. There, I was lured in by the Favela Beach crafted by Gabriel Orta of Miami's Broken Shaker that paired the grassiness of cachaça with the bright citrus and vanilla notes of Licor 43. Once prepared, the drink gave forth a grassy funk and orange aroma. Next, a lightly citrus but full-bodied sip stepped aside to a grassy, vanilla, cinnamon, and funk-filled swallow.
