waterproof watch

1 1/2 oz London Dry Gin (Tanqueray)
3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
3/4 oz Aperol
2 dash DeGroff's Pimento Bitters (1/4 oz Hamilton's Allspice Dram)

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I spotted a curious Negroni-like drink in Imbibe Magazine called the Waterproof Watch. The recipe was created by Sother Teague for the second branch of Amor y Amargo that recently opened up in Brooklyn, and I was drawn to it (besides loving what Sother creates) for Aperol and Montenegro have worked well together in cocktails like the A Man About Town and Schipol. Once prepared, the Waterproof Watch unwound with orange oil from the garnish and orange and other fruity aromas from the drink itself. Next, an orange-melon sip aged into an gin and bitter orange swallow with an allspice finish.
