inherent vice

1 1/2 oz Rhum Agricole Blanc (Rhum Clement Premiere Canne)
3/4 oz Blanc Vermouth (Dolin)
1/2 oz Aperol
1/4 oz Campari
2 dash Grapefruit Bitters (Bittercube Jamaica #2)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I decided to make an original recipe that I had spotted on Matt Robold's Rumdood blog. This agricole Negroni riff was entitled the Inherent Vice, and it began with a grapefruit and grassy aroma. Next, a citrussy white wine sip led into funky and grassy rhum notes melding into a bitter orange flavor on the swallow. Overall, quite delightful and I will gladly add it to the tapestry of other agricole Negroni riffs including the Pirate Slave, Defensio, Tarzan Boy, and Sleeping with Strangers.
