1 1/2 oz Noble Oak Rye (Templeton)
3/4 oz Cocchi Americano
3/4 oz Cynar

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Saturdays, I began perusing the 2020 Community Cocktails book when I came across the Wilderness crafted by Melissa Cross at Seattle's Vito's. The combination of rye, Cocchi Americano, and Cynar reminded me of the rum-based Tailor of Panama and the Scotch-based Gloamin Dwines. In the glass, the Wilderness showcased an orange oil over caramel aroma. Next, the caramel from the Cynar continued on into the sip where it joined orchard fruit and orange notes, and the swallow came through with rye and mint herbal flavors.
